Welcome to Waimakariri District Libraries
Welcome to Waimakariri District Libraries. We have three libraries funded as a service of the Waimakariri District Council - Rangiora, Oxford and Kaiapoi.
Free access to the public libraries at Rangiora, Kaiapoi and Oxford is available to all residents, ratepayers and children of the District. We have quality collections of books, eBooks, DVDs, music, magazines, newspapers and talking books. We also offer a wealth of reference and local history information both print and electronic, and if we don't have what you need we can interloan from other libraries.
Library Mission Statement
'The first choice for knowledge and entertainment'.
The Library is a leading provider of the District’s informational, educational and recreational needs by providing materials that inform, inspire, entertain and sometimes challenge users. We do this by providing access to ideas and stories that connect people to their community, their culture, their heritage, their futures and the world in which they live.
