Welcome to Waitaki District Libraries

Kids Book Club

With books, puzzles, DVDs and digital resources as well as activities and services, the children’s library is here for children of all ages.


The Oamaru Public Library offers a variety of collections and several very special collections.

The General Adult Collection is comprised of Fiction, Non Fiction, Large Print, Audio Visual, Graphic Novels, Magazines, Newspapers, Talking Books and DVDs.

The Waitaki District Libraries' vision is to engender community engagement and lifelong learning. Because we work in conjunction with other community groups, such as the Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) and Literacy North Otago (to name but a few), we can put you on to the right people and resources.
