Public Display Boards and Community Notice Boards

Public display boards

Do you have an upcoming community event? Maybe you run a local charity, cultural group or training course and would like to get the word out to the wider Wellington community? We have seven public display boards at Wellington Central Library, available to book at a cost of $35 per week and an exhibition space on the Mezzanine floor next to Clarks available at $150 per week. All displays must meet the Wellington City Libraries' Display Policy.

There are 7 display boards available for hire:

  • Board 1: (3 panels inside Central Library, near Returns Area )
  • Board 2a: (2 panels in foyer, bottom of stairs to Clark's Cafe near Library entrance)

The boards consist of 2/3 panels, depending on the location, the cost is the same for each board. The dimensions are: 700 X 1300 mm (each comfortably fitting an A1 sized poster). The boards are made of perforated metal with a foam core. Display material can be attached using pins, tape or grip spots. There are pins and pamphlet holders available at the Information desk.

To complete a booking an application form should be completed with your details and signature. With this you agree to the Wellington City Libraries' Display Policy. Payment confirms your booking. Payment must be made before each display is placed on Library boards. Payment is non-refundable and date changes can only be made if there is space available.

You are welcome to set up your display from 9.30a.m. onwards, when the Central Library opens (Monday-Saturday). Please let the Information Desk know you are here and check the location of your Display Board. Pins are available if you need them. The previous display material should be removed and handed over at the Information desk. Your material can be collected from the information desk after the last date of your booking.

Community notice boards

In addition to the public display boards, all branches of Wellington City Libraries provide public notice boards and leaflet stands for displaying and promoting the activities and programmes of community organisations and groups, free of charge. Please hand your display material to staff at the information desk for our Displays Team to put up. There is no set timeframe for posters to be displayed on the notice boards, rather when time and space allow. All material is accepted at the discretion of the Libraries Manager or his/her representative and must comply with the Libraries' Display Policy.
