Public Libraries of New Zealand is the peak body for the public library sector. We work with more than 300 public libraries across New Zealand to make sure all of us living in this country have access to lifelong learning opportunities and information. Use our map to find a library near you and check out the range of services, programmes and free events.
Your local library helps children and young people develop imagination and creativity. They give adults opportunities to learn about technology and how to use it. They keep collections about your community's cultural heritage, and open up avenues to current thinking in all areas of human endeavour.
Librarians everywhere use their knowledge and know-how to give you access to information, and remove barriers to learning and to experience, especially in the digital space. If you are a fact finder or self-educator, research aficionado or champion reader - that is people who enjoy learning - your local library will fuel your curiosity and broaden your experience of the world.
