Balclutha Genealogical Society

The Balclutha Genealogical Society meets regularly in the Balclutha Community Library, and store some of their research equipment in our library. Any member of the public is welcome to come to their meetings to get aid with searching for family history. They are contactable through their Facebook page and are happy to help people with their family history search.

Owaka Community Groups

Due to the nature of the Owaka Community Library being housed in a multi-use facility, we often collaborate with local groups for exhibitions in the gallery space located on site. In the past this has included Forest and Bird, the Owaka Lions, QEII National Trust, and more! If you want to collaborate with the Owaka gallery space, call the Owaka Community Library today!

Clutha Camera Club

The Clutha Camera Club frequently holds workshops in the Balclutha Community Library, and has used our space to hold their regular meetings. They are an open group that welcomes newcomers to join so get in touch with them by email ( if you are interested in joining. Anything they are holding in collaboration with the library which is open to the public will be advertised on our events page.
