The District Council operates three public libraries - in Taihape, Marton and Bulls (and there are community libraries at Hunterville, Mangaweka and Kawhatau).

We have lots to read ...

The libraries run regular children’s programmes, with an emphasis on encouraging reading. The libraries have a large print titles, and receive monthly loans of audiobooks for the sight impaired. There is a range of newspapers and magazines in each library, and PCs are available for use (including Internet access). ... and we do all sorts of other useful things.

In Taihape and Bulls, the library includes a Council service centre (for Council enquiries and transactions) and visitor information centres.
