About Us

Welcome to Your Library

Central Hawke’s Bay District Libraries - Waipawa Library and Waipukurau Library - sit at the heart of our communities.

From the youngest to the oldest, our Libraries are a place for everyone. A place to thrive.

Our Libraries open up a world of reading enjoyment. Our collection is dynamic, updated regularly to meet the broad tastes of our readers. From toddler board-books to young adult comics, new release popular fiction through to audiobooks, there is truly something for everyone.  

More than just books, our Libraries are places of discovery. Our programmes, events, resources and technology, enable our communities to learn, connect and grow.  

Our Libraries provide space for community - space to meet, share, make or learn. We are keen facilitators of community initiatives, reaching out with reading programmes into local schools, partnering to bring low cost internet into local families’ homes, and working together to record and preserve our unique local heritage.

We invite you to explore and enjoy, all that Central Hawke’s Bay District Libraries has to offer.
