Where are you heading for the school holidays? Make it the Waihi Library, where our holiday programme is on every weekday between 11.00am and noon. The events are aimed for school-age children, with parents encouraged to come along and other family members are also welcome.
There’s no cost, and you don’t need to register or even be a library member – though kids and grown-ups will be able to join if they wish. See what's on

Work on the new Paeroa library will be started in 2014!
The new building will be located on the corner of Mackay and Willoughby Streets (opposite the main entrance to the domain).
Currently in the Paeroa library we are asking for your ideas for the new library, so please come on in and write them down and have it displayed for everyone to see.

Your library's resources are as easy to use as the Internet, without the hassle or risk.
Did you know that fewer than 10% of search-engine results offer relevant research information?
Wikipedia and other user-generated sites can be a starting point for research, but even Wikipedia warns it "makes no guarantee of validity".
Your library's online resources contain only authentic, expert-chosen books, images, newspapers, magazines, audio/video and interactive tools. You can trust the content.

The National Library's Print Disabilities Service offers audio books to adults, young adults and children who have a print disability. Find out more
