We’re Back at Last!

The management and staff of the Masterton District Library and the Wairarapa Archive apologise for the lack of access to our online services for the past few days.

To use the well-worn phrase ‘this was out of our control’ and we have had to change providers to make the Home Page available again.

We are doing all we can to ensure that the service is available to you 24/7 in the future. If you have any problems due to an inability to renew items on line or access your account please ring 3706255 and speak to Christine Hawker Customer Services Librarian.
