There are two libraries in the Waipā District Libraries, located in Cambridge and Te Awamutu, who provide free membership to all residents and ratepayers of Waipā and are run by a dedicated team of helpful staff.
Te Awamutu Library entrance is off Selwyn Lane. Cambridge Library is co-located with the Council building on Wilson Street.
Throughout the year, our libraries provide a range of children’s programmes such as Toddler Time, Wriggle & Rhyme, Makerspace, School holiday programmes and a special summer reading programme at the end of year break.
Te Awamutu undertook a $4.4 million rebuild in 2016 and is the anchor landmark building for the development of a cultural and recreational precinct for the community.

Following a highly successful Heritage month, March focuses on authors and publishing.
Ocean Reeve Publishing is touring New Zealand in March and is coming to Waipā prior to releasing Lisa Tamati's new book 'Relentless'. Our libraries will be hosting the free 2 hour seminars in both locations.
Local authors Julie Thomas and Trudi Caffell will also be sharing their knowledge at two presentation style workshops in Cambridge.
For our younger audiences, Te Awamutu Library will host a special Te Reo Singalong Show with author Sharon Holt in what will be another highlight for the month and is sure to delight children in attendance.
