I am thrilled that you're getting so much attention for your library. I'm a bookworm, so anything to get people (back) into reading is top-notch in

Visiting Invers from Melbourne with my two young kids. What an amazing children's area they have here! I wish they were like this in Melbourne. Keep it up.

I am simply amazed, how ordinary people dedicate their free time to work for the public in a local library, and the way you exposed yourself to trigger attention to your library, and highlighting the ...importance of reading in the Kardashians-inspired photoshoot is EPIC! Congrats guys! See More

A huge thanks to everyone who donated money toward Connor's head shave drive. We raised over $1100 for The Cancer Society of New Zealand. What do you think of his new look?

Chatter nights is a safe and fun place to practice your English, help other people develop their Southland accent and catch up with your mates. There is tea and coffee and there is plenty of time to get some books out as well.

We are always sad to see a member of our Library family go, but this one hit us close to home. Bridget helped to make the Library Facebook Page what it is today, and so we thought she needed to be in one last special video. Haere rā Bridget.
