Is this the right service for you?
If you are temporarily unable to visit the library or would like us to courier a selection to you at home or work, our Library Express service is an option.
- Library Express is a charged service that allows you to arrange with our staff for a selection of items (either chosen by our librarians, or nominated by you) to be delivered to you by courier
- Any (borrowable) item in our collection (Library Catalogue) can be requested — either choose your items yourself, or request that our librarians select for you
- If you prefer, you can also give us a general idea of the topics you're interested in, e.g. topic based - 3 rose gardening books, author based - e.g. 3 Bill Bryson, format based - e.g. 3 Star Wars DVDs, or a mix of descriptors you give us
- $5 Delivery within the Wellington region (the pink areas in this map)
- Other charges may depend on your request and this will be confirmed as applicable ( e.g. $2 reservation fee, $2 extra per item if you are a rental borrower, $1 per item interlibrary return fee, 20c per A4 page photocopying, search time)
Library members who use this service via phone, email, fax — a charge will be placed on your library card for you to pay on your next library visit.
