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.
