BURP - Breastfeeding's Ultimate Refuel Place BURP logo final

Gore and Mataura Libraries are registered BURP venues. Mothers will find a variety of places to breastfeed their baby in our children’s areas. If that area is busy there are also other quiet seating areas.

Nappy time

There is a change table in the women's toilet in the James Cumming Wing foyer.

Your quiet space

There are lots of baby and toddler books so cuddle up for family story time on a sofa or cushions.

You and your child can enjoy colouring or other quiet activities at the table set up for this purpose.
