Buller District Council

About the Library

We provide public library services at two main locations in Buller. The district library is located in Westport and our branch library is in Reefton. You can access our on-line library catalogue anytime, through our website. Membership provides access to both Westport and Reefton collections and items can be returned to either library, with after hours return slots available also.

This is your library. If there is a book or a service we don’t have,  make a suggestion
