Buller District Libraries consists of the Sue Thomson Casey Memorial Library in Westport and the Inangahua County Library in Reefton. Our libraries offer community groups, events, and classes for adults and children. We provide access to computers and WiFi, newspapers, council information, local history archives, scanning, printing and laminating.
We also offer meeting rooms for hire.

Books and resources in our libraries are available for all Buller residents regardless of location. Any item available in Reefton can be put on hold and borrowed by those in Westport and vice versa. We will contact you when requested item(s) have arrived to your chosen library and are available for pick-up.

Summer Reading Road Trip Winners!

The Buller District Libraries annual Summer Reading Road Trip has come to an end, with 32 major prize winners being drawn this week! 
This year 142 children signed up for the challenge, committing to read every week during January.
Everyone who completed each week went into the draw to win prizes, which consisted of thirty vouchers for books, sporting equipment or games. Two winners selected from all the completed entries each won a Chromebook each.
Library Manager Nicky Meadowcroft says: “Lewis Bowden of Westport was beaming when he received his Chromebook at his school assembly this week! Lewis loves reading. His Mum, Davinia, said he was determined to read every day of the Summer Reading Road Trip!” 
The second Chromebook recipient was Scott Nyenhuis of Reefton. He is also an avid reader and enjoyed spending quality time with his family while reading together during the holidays.

Buller District Libraries no longer charges fines for overdue items.

We have also canceled existing fines from all library accounts, giving everyone a fresh start. 

We're very excited about this change as we believe in actively working to eliminate barriers to encourage community-wide use of the Library's vital materials, resources, and services.
