Opawa Public Library

Come and Enjoy!

The Opawa Public Library is run by a group of dedicated volunteers with the aim of bringing the joy of reading to adults and children in Opawa and the surrounding communities.

We have a wide range of adults books, children's books and DVD's, for hire and sale.
The library has a fantastic area for kids to come in cuddle up with a teddy and read, or sit and do some colouring.
We are also dog friendly!

Membership is free and joining up is easy.
Please come in, say hello and see what we have to offer, we have something for everyone and you just may be suprised what you find!
