Notice: We expect disruption to Waitara Library’s Council services for the foreseeable future.  

Spark is addressing the internet connectivity issues and we’ll be working together to make sure we’re up and running as soon as possible. Services at our Puke Ariki and other Community Libraries will still be available to use. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and will keep you up to date with any changes.
