Southland District libraries have material in a variety of formats, including large print, audio, dvd, e-books and e-audiobooks. Most items are loaned free of charge although a small charge is placed on services such as reserves and interloans, and to borrow dvds.
Our branches offer free wi-fi access and computer use.
For Southland to reach its potential and build a stronger, brighter future it needs more people. To achieve this goal a bold approach and collaborative effort across all of Southland is required.
Those are among the key proposals in the Southland Regional Development Strategy document, launched in October 2015.
The strategy was commissioned by the Mayoral Forum to unify regional development and to look at levers for economic and social development. It wanted a clear statement of problems and a framework to develop solutions, as well as a strategy document providing a clear plan of united action.
