New procedures for State Library membership

Improving the security and privacy of customer passwords is important to the State Library, so we are introducing some new requirements for your library membership.  

I'm an Existing state library MEMBER

New security measures mean that existing State Library members need to reset their password.

Passwords are case sensitive and must contain:

  • 8 - 30 characters
  • one UPPERCASE letter
  • one lowercase letter
  • at least one number
  • a special character.
