Matamata Library is closed (temporarily)

Matamata Library has closed for the move to the temporary site. We are hoping to reopen as soon as possible, and we will keep you updated with the latest news.

The temporary library will be located opposite the Memorial Hall on Tainui Street. Until this opens keep using the after-hours slot at the current library if you have books to return.

Don't forget there are e-books and audiobooks available through Overdrive if you cannot be without a book (check out the digital tab for more information). Or drop by Morirnsville Library or Te Aroha Library for a change of scenery - we would love to see you.

We apologise for any inconvenience and disruption this may cause. We look forward to seeing you in our temporary library as soon as possible.We're Moooving!
