All libraries are closed during COVID-19 Alert Level 4

All Wellington City Libraries’ branches will be closed temporarily from 11:59pm, Tuesday 17 August under Covid-19 Alert Level 4.

While we are closed, library members can access a range of online resources in our eLibrary. This includes a huge range of online storytimes, eBooks, newspapers, movies, and online courses.

If you have items on loan, please keep them at home until our libraries reopen. Their due dates have been extended automatically until at least Tuesday 28 September

All reserved items will be held until one week after libraries reopen, so you will have time to collect them.

If you’re not a member, you can join the library to access the online resources at
