Heritage collection

If you want to know about Waikato districts past, this is a great place to start. Upstairs in the Huntly library is a room full of local history dating back over 100 years.

There are oral histories as well as hard-copies of local newspapers, school magazines and lots of other print material.

There is a variety of microfiche available including births, deaths and marriages, shipping registers etc.

If you are interested in genealogy then we have an extensive collection of resources here to assist you too.

Some of the material you can borrow and others are to be read either in the Huntly library or within your local library.
