The Ōamaru Library will be closed from end of business Friday 12 May, reopening on Monday 29 May to upgrade the library heating system in time for winter. All borrowed library items will be automatically extended on the evening of the 12th of May to a due date of June 2nd.
We're getting ready to reopen on Monday, the 29th of May at 9.30am. The heating is now in and we're moving things back in. See you on Monday!
With books, puzzles, DVDs and digital resources as well as fun activities and fabulous services, the children’s library is here for children of all ages. The Ōamaru and Palmerston Children’s Libraries are family-friendly spaces designed with a focus on growing a love of reading and life long learning. It is also a space that encourages collaboration and creativity.
