Te Matapihi Ki Te Ao Nui

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.


All our libraries will be closed Monday 22 January for Wellington Anniversary Day. Additionally, systems work will mean that catalogue search and membership access via this website will be unavailable for approximately 24 hours from 4 pm Sunday, affecting services including Borrowbox, Lynda and Pressreader. We apologise if you are impacted by this outage.
