There are four libraries located within the Mareeba Shire, all providing an extensive variety of materials to borrow including books, videos, DVDs, music CDs, magazines, audio books, newspapers and games. Internet and computer access, photocopying and children’s activities are also available. As the four libraries are all part of the one service, you can pick up and drop off resources at all four libraries interchangeably.
