Te Reo Kete are now available to borrow from five of the libraries in our network: Te Awa-a-Taia (Kilbirnie), Te Awe (Brandon Street), Te Māhanga (Karori), and Waitohi (Johnsonville)

The purpose of the kete is for adults to launch their te reo learning journey, with the option of sharing this experience with their whānau too. Each kete contains ten books plus a card game: five books to help you develop your grammar and vocabulary, two books to familiarise yourself with tikanga, and three kids books to practise all you’ve learned.

You can also supplement your learning, and have a have a quick guide to common phrases, by downloading Wellington City Council’s own Mahau app for either Android or Apple.

Each of our branches have five kete, available on a first-come, first-served basis. They are unable to be renewed or reserved, and must be returned to the same branch they were issued from. The kete are free to borrow, and can be loaned out for six weeks at a time.
