kiama-circleWith 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. 

If you are keen on walking and learning we have some walking tour plaques found around the district, and the coastal walking path.

As a member of the library, you have access to many online resources (many databases) using you library card. For those who have an interest in statistics, we can help you out as well.
