New arrivals


Ashburton Library is conveniently located within the post office, and with volunteer support our customers are able to access the self-service library to browse and borrow books and DVDs, collect reservations, return items and use the public computers even when library staff are not on duty.

There’s always lots going on in Ashburton Library, look out for children’s activities, family drop-in craft sessions, special events and a knit and yarn group hosted by local volunteers.
