Welcome to the WellSpring Library


WellSpring Library

January 2023


We welcome you to the WellSpring library and hope that you find enjoyment and enrichment in these books.



  • Students enrolled in a course through Whitley are automatically added as borrowers.
  • For all other people wishing to borrow books, please fill in a registration slip and place it in the box marked ‘Registration slips and borrowing cards.’




  • Please take books from the general shelves only, not the returns box.
  • Books on the reserved shelf may only be borrowed by students in the Art of Spiritual Companioning course.
  • You are welcome to borrow up to five books at any one time.
  • Books may be borrowed for up to one month.
  • Write the date and your name and phone number CLEARLY on the borrowing card from the pocket in back of the book and place it in the box marked ‘Registration slips and borrowing cards’.
  • Write down the due date for yourself (one month from the date of borrowing) on the ‘Date due’ slip in the back of the book.
  • If a book is overdue, you will receive an overdue notice (NB: this will come from Whitley College where the WellSpring catalogue is managed).
  • If you wish to borrow a book from the ‘Library book returns’ box, please advise WellSpring at library@wellspringcentre.org.au of the number starting with ‘IWSPG’ under the WellSpring barcode on the back of the book (this identifies the individual book borrowed).




  • The catalogue for the WellSpring library is at www.whitley.edu.au/library (then click on the catalogue heading)
  • This will indicate where the book is held (WellSpring, Whitley on campus, or offsite)
  • Students enrolled in a course with the University of Divinity (UD) can borrow from Whitley as well as from any of the other college libraries associated with the university. For more information, see www.whitley.edu.au/library .






  • Students may borrow books online

In-Person at WellSpring Centre:



  • Simply place the books in the box marked ‘Library book returns’ in the Resource Room near the computer. Please do not put them back on the shelf, as we need to process all returns – otherwise, you will receive an overdue notice.



Thanks for observing these guidelines.

As the library is not staffed full time, you are welcome to contact library@wellspringcentre.org.au to discuss library matters.
