Our aim is to educate, enrich, entertain, inform, involve and empower the people of the Shoalhaven.

We are committed to serving the information and recreation needs of children and young people. The Library aims to provide a welcoming environment, and targeted resources and programs to meet the needs of all library users including targeted groups.

Our libraries consist of four branches; Nowra, Sanctuary Point, Milton and Ulladulla as well as a Mobile Library service that visits outlying villages. We also have a Digital Library which houses a diverse range of eResources such as eBook, Audiobooks and Magazines.

We are apart of the South Coast Cooperative, which means that members can also borrow from Kiama and Gerringong library.
