It also includes fiction by local authors and children's books. These range from professionally published comprehensive books to small self published material.
Currently we have only digitised a small selection of our older books but we aim to add more. Many of our books, particularly recent ones, have copies in our lending collection, so please check the Timaru District Libraries catalogue (link below). As not all of our older books appear on our catalogue yet please contact us if you are looking for a particular publication or require information on a particular topic.
