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


All our libraries will be closed on Monday 25 January for Wellington Anniversary Day.

In addition, Brooklyn Library is closed for two weeks (12 to 26 January) to upgrade the lighting and heating. The library will re-open at 1pm Wednesday 27 January. You can visit the nearby Arapaki Manners, Te Awe Brandon or Newtown branches for all your library services. Thank you for your understanding.
