District Libraries and Information Centres Open

Update 20 April

The Marton Library; Taihape Library and Information Centre and Te Matapihi - Bulls Community Centre will reopen to the public from Wednesday 20 April.

There are no entry limits, and no vaccine passes, but masks are still mandatory at our public facilities.


If we find ourselves in a situation where, due to staff illness, we have insufficient staff to operate all public facilities, then it is likely that we will revert back to a click and collect service, until sufficient staffing is available.



There are 3 main libraries in Rangitikei - Bulls Marton and Taihape.

Our library is FREE to join and borrowing is also free. Our libraries together hold more than 50,000 books, with another 4,000 being added each year.

As well as books, we have audio books, DVD's, Magazines, and an online digital service. All of our libraries have computers available for use, with free WIFI.

We have a range of activities including - School programmes, Kids activities, book clubs, visiting authors, and writing groups.

We're proud to be the hub of your community.
