The Karratha library is the main library within the City of Karratha and serves a population of 21,473 residents (ABS statistics 2016 Census of Population and Housing). The contemporary library service accommodates a comprehensive relevant collection and is community gathering place that invites children, adults, seniors, families and students. There is a plethora of modern services that is user-driven such as printing, scanning and photocopying.
It’s an imaginative space that promotes programs for all ages, accommodates our Local History Collection (digitally and physical). The space allows for study and/or collaborative meetings all with access to power, free Wifi and public computers. The library is centrally located within the city centre. The programs delivered at the library are relevant and informative in its delivery. Programs include the delivery of weekly story time and rhyme time sessions for our young families, keeping school aged children with weekly after school programs and keeping adults informed/entertained with guest speaker talks and author talks to name a few.
