Details:

What? Te Pātaka Open Days

Date: Thursday 22 July — see topics below

Location: Johnsonville (details on registration)

Please remember to bring your library card

If you’re feeling uninspired by the algorithms on Spotify, or have a hankering for some old New Zealand bands that you can’t find anywhere, why not check out the old Central Library CD collection in its new home in Johnsonville .

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 material 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.

Please note: The area of the stacks containing the CD Collection will only be accessible from 10am-11am on the 22nd.

Spots are limited and visits are restricted to one hour, so bookings will be essential — view and book session times and topics available below.

  • Fiction
  • Large print
  • Biography
  • Science and health
  • Graphic novels
