Flood recovery donations


We're receiving many kind offers of donations following the record-breaking flooding across the region and the resulting devastation. This page details how best to donate new and near-new books and how to support your libraries by financial donation.

Our library collections affected by the recent flood are as follows:

     • Adult Fiction
     • Large Print Books
     • Junior & Young Adult Books
     • Children's Story Books
     • Children's DVDs
     • Jigsaws
     • Audio Books
     • Parenting Collection (non-fiction books on parenting topics)
     • Junior Non-Fiction Books

Ways to donate

We've been overwhelmed with love and support shown to our libraries through physical book donations. refurbishment is still ongoing and library storage is at capacity. As such, we're currently not accepting any new book donations.
You can still make a monetary donation or purchase a book of your choosing for our libraries from one of our flood recovery partners (listed below). Thank You!
