Libraries Print

Anyone can use the libraries in the East Pilbara to study, read or relax. If you want to borrow books, you must become a member.

You may borrow books for up to two weeks. You can also renew loans unless someone else has reserved the books. Library staff can order non-fiction books for you on inter-library loan from any public library in WA.

The Shire libraries have a collection of reference books, which you can read in the libraries, but cannot borrow. There are also books with large print, foreign language books, audio tapes and videotapes, which you may borrow.


The Newman Library is so much more than a place to borrow books. Facilities at the Newman Library mean you can scan and copy documents as well as laminate larger size posters. There are a number of computer stations where you can use the internet for personal use or for on-line learning.

If you are travelling and unable to borrow, the Newman Library operate a fabulous book exchange program that enable you to restock your reading material before continuing on your travels.

Thursdays and Fridays are a favourite with the younger members of our community.

Thursday plays host to our Gumnuts group. Gumnuts is specifically designed for children; newborn- 2yrs. Gumnuts is a relaxing time for parents, carers and children alike where clapping and singing your favourite nursery rhymes and tunes are the order of the day.

For more information on Gumnuts.

Friday is Story Time. This group is well suited for children 3-5 years. Story time is as the title suggests; A story that involves discussion, laughter, and children's contribution. Story Time usually has a craft session following the story that is theme related. The group is well structured and the young children really enjoy the gathering.
