Kia Ora. Explore and connect with a world of knowledge and ideas. There's always something new to discover at our libraries and community centres.


Our libraries will be closed Monday 22 January for Wellington Anniversary Day. Additionally, systems work will mean that online services including catalogues and membership access will be unavailable for approximately 24 hours from 4:15pm Sunday, affecting eBook downloads, and mygateway database logins. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
