Welcome to


Public Libraries of New Zealand

Public libraries sit at the heart of their communities. They help create a sense of belonging and they respond to the needs of the people who use them. They celebrate cultural diversity, and they help promote understanding between different cultural groups.

Public libraries provide opportunities for lifelong learning. They help children and young people develop imagination and creativity, and they give adults the opportunity to learn about their cultural heritage, and about the arts, science and technology.
