We provide residents with access to a wide range of resources to entertain, inform and assist in daily living, with collections for adults, youth and children.

Resources are available in a variety of formats including books, large print books, magazines, DVDs, and audiobooks suitable for all age groups. Language and literacy materials along with bookclub sets may be requested from State Library. Contact your local librarian for assistance.
