The Te Pātaka Collection and Distribution Centre houses Wellington Central Library’s collection. This is a rare opportunity to visit, browse and borrow!
What? Te Pātaka Open Days
Date: Wednesday 14 July; Thursday 22 July — see topics per day below
Location: Johnsonville (details on registration)
Please remember to bring your library card
On the hunt for some crafting ideas? Missing all those classic graphic novels, DVDs or biographies? Or treat yourself to a swag of history, beliefs, cookery or photography books.
We’ll be opening our Te Pātaka Collection Centre to customers on two days during the school holidays. You’ll be able to browse and borrow books from our off-site storage collection. Some of the collection is on rolling stacks, so different areas of the collection will be more accessible at different times. If possible, choose the time slot which matches your interest as it will be easier for you to see that topic then. If the area you’re interested in isn’t listed below, you are still welcome and we will do our best to make it work.
Spots are limited and visits are restricted to one hour, so bookings will be essential — view and book session times and topics available below. We can’t wait to see you!
