ServiceWA – What you will need

The process for logging in and setting up your ServiceWA profile can be complicated so to ensure we can have you up and running as quickly and smoothly as possible please read the information below:

Apps you will need:

Please install the following apps on your device (if you able to do so)

What you will need to bring:

The process for logging into the ServiceWA app requires authentification with MyGov and Medicare. Please bring:

Identification:

  • Driver’s Licence
  • Medicare Card

Usernames and Passwords:

  • MyGov (Visit my.gov.au to create an account)
  • Personal email
  • Apple ID (iPhone users)

Additionally, to verify your Medicare information you may also be asked to provide the BSB and Account number of the bank account you have your Medicare payments returned to.

Additional tips:

As we work through our list of people needing assistance, we’ve discovered some regular problems that people are having so thought we’d share!

👉 Android users must have Chrome set as their default bowser (change in settings).

👉 Android phones need to be version 10 or higher, Apple iPhones need to be iOS 14 or higher.

👉 MyGov and MyGovID are not the same thing. MyGov is accessed on an internet browser as it is a website, MyGovID is an app used to verify your identity.

For further assistance please visit the support page on the WA government website.

If you are unsure about any of the above, please contact us to discuss.

Meet Garry Linnell

Thursday 26 November – 5:30pm


Join Walkley-winning writer Garry Linnell as he discusses his latest work Moonlite.

The tragic love story of an Irish-born preacher who becomes, along with Ned Kelly, one of the nation’s most notorious and celebrated criminals. Charismatic, intelligent and handsome, George Scott is unlike any other bushranger.

Learn how this true and epic tale was brought to life. With meticulous research, previously unpublished material and extensive letters Scott wrote from his death cell.

Moonlite is a brilliant work of non-fiction that reads like a novel.

Register now for this unique event and a link and instructions will be sent to you prior to the discussion.

PLEASE NOTE: You do not need a Zoom account to join, but users on a mobile device (phone or tablet) will need to download the app through the App Store or GooglePlay store. Desktop and laptop users can join via the link.

If you have any questions you would like to ask Garry, please email elibrary@dardanup.wa.gov.au with “Questions for Garry” in the subject line.

We look forward to seeing you online!

This event is made possible by Shire of Dardanup Library Services and Public Libraries WA, in partnership with Penguin Random House Publishing.

       

Happy Birthday Batman!

Copyright DC Comics.

It has been 34 years this month since the release of Frank Miller’s groundbreaking graphic novel, The Dark Knight Returns.

A far cry from the cheesy caped crusader of the 1960s, Miller’s story reimagines the character as the grittier and morally compromised hero we are more familiar with today.

The Dark Knight Returns has had such a lasting impact it has served as the inspiration for all incarnations of Batman since. It also established the graphic novel as a “legitmate” literary art form in popular culture, inspiring many of our favourite authors including Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore, David Mitchell, and Claire North.

We have a great selection of graphic novels, including The Dark Knight Returns. Now that we’re open again, why not come down and try one out. Feel free to ask our staff for some recommendations.
