Watch TV series on DVD at your own pace

dvd box setsLife seems so much busier these days and trying to watch The Killing (Danish version, of course) in a week is pretty nigh impossible.  And customers have told us much the same. So we’ve listened and made a change.  From Wednesday the 1st of August all our box set DVDs* will be issued for three weeks instead of one, just like our books. So now there are a lot  more opportunities to watch your favourite TV series or in fact any of our other box sets DVDs. And there’s more good news – the price is staying the same at only $8 per box set.  So why not take advantage of this change and take three or four box sets home with you next time you come to the library?

* Please note this change applies only to those DVDs labelled as Box Sets, listed in the catalogue as Box Sets and for which the loan charge is $8.

Welcoming Christchurch library patrons

Have you relocated from Christchurch to Wellington? Are you keen to continue your use of libraries? From today, Christchurch City Libraries card holders are eligible for temporary Wellington City Libraries cards for up to 6 months membership.

We are also collecting library books that need to be relocated back to Christchurch, so if you have any items with you that you need to return to a Christchurch City Libraries branch, you’re welcome to bring these into any Wellington City Libraries branch and we will ensure that they’re returned to Christchurch City Libraries when the library is ready to receive them.

If you have Wellington City Libraries items in Christchurch, please contact either Nicky on 801 4055 or Elizabeth on 801 4058 for advice.
