Celebrate the Fab Four at our Beatles Tribute Night (featuring live music from El Scratcho!)

Come and enjoy an evening of fun and great music!

Join us on Friday, 7 May for a fun evening looking back at the career of the Fab Four!

Do you play the piano? We want you!

Are you a pianist?

During the month of May, we’ll be celebrating local talent with our Public Piano Performances! 

We are dusting off our piano and welcoming pianists to come and play in the library. You don’t need to be a professional, but we suggest that you are familiar with the pieces you choose to perform!

When selecting the works of music to play, please favour pleasant melodic compositions that would make an enjoyable background and abstain from Chopsticks 😜.

How it works

  1. Book your time slot
  2. Check-in at the Help Desk when you arrive
  3. Play!

Library staff reserve the right to restrict use, or ask you to stop playing the piano, at any time. Under 14 year olds are welcome to play under adult supervision.

Land, Sky, and Wai: Community weaving project!

Invercargill City Libraries and Harakeke Down South are encouraging the community to take part in creating a woven taonga made of harakeke representing our region’s nature!

Live Stronger For Longer: Make the most of your retirement

Are you aged 65+ and are keen to get more active?

Come along to our weekly community strength and balance group! Starting on Tuesday 13 April at 10.30am, join us each week for an hour of directed exercises before winding down with a cuppa.

What does the class involve?

The class involves exercises that aim to improve strength and balance while reducing falls.  Don’t worry about keeping up – although these classes may make you breathe a little harder, they won’t involve any exercises that could do you harm.

Who is the class for?

All New Zealanders who are 65+ and at risk of falling, or have a history of falling, should give it a go. 

What is Live Stronger for Longer?

Live Stronger for Longer is a national movement full of practical information and advice on how to stay active, well and independent for over 65s and those caring for over 65s.
