Kiama Library accepts donated books for our collection that comply with our collection development policy.
We gratefully accept:
Anything that does not comply with these conditions are generally passed on to the Friends of Kiama Library for library fund raising. What is remaining is sent to Lifeline to help them in their charity work.
With the 2015 ANZAC Centenary being commemorated across the nation, Kiama Library has researched the WW1 project, bringing to light the extraordinary stories of soldiers who fought and died during this awful war.
We are continually adding to our local history articles to tell our town's story. Included in this collection is the special edition of the Kiama Independent's "Our History in Print", a must for any student studying Kiama.
Aboriginal Kiama tells the story before white settlers, while the History of Kiama Council tells the story after the colonisation of the area. Blue Haven, the book, was commissioned by Kiama Council. It is provided online to provide a broader history of the district. It is a great resource to start your researching.
Our image galleries provide a rich treasure of images from around the district over the years. We have even dug up some old movies of Kiama and its personalities. We also have a comprehensive list of people of notoriety from Kiama and its district.
We are always keen to recieve donations of images not already held in our collection. Be they of people or places or events, we welcome any anything about the Kiama District.
If you wish to share your images with us, please contact us and come into the library and we'd enjoy meeting you and seeing your material.

We all love a good book and enjoy the opportunity to share a great read with friends.
Kiama Library would love to hear about the books you have enjoyed or thought about and are happy to publish them on the website.
