Memberships


Libraries are funded largely by rates.  Membership is therefore free to residents of Matamata-Piako district and entitles you to use Matamata, Morrinsville and Te Aroha libraries, plus our online collections.  

Full Membership is also available to non-residents. Check our fees and charges. Digital Membership is for residents who wish to access computers or digital materials only.

We also have special membership types for housebound and people with print disabilities.  Please contact us for more information.

Guest passes are available for non-residents using public computers.
