BURP logo final

Gore and Mataura Library 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 unisex toilet in the children's area.

Your quiet space

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