If you’re not a library member, then you’re missing out!

Membership of the libraries is free for all ratepayers and permanent residents of Buller District.

Children and youth under 18 years of age need their parent or guardian’s approval to join.

(If you live outside of the Buller District or if you reside in the Buller for a short time only, you can still join our library by paying a subscription fee).

Membership entitles you to borrow from Westport and Reefton libraries with more than 31,000 items in their collection. New items are added frequently. We offer library and information services to the community including:

  • Free Internet
  • WiFi hot spots at Westport and Reefton Libraries
  • Latest Bestsellers
  • DVD rentals
  • Local History and Archives services
