Cultivate curiosity in your community by supporting New Zealand public libraries!
Public Libraries of New Zealand (PLNZ) helps to fund new ideas and new programmes that raise the profile of public libraries, making learning possible for Kiwis of all ages.
Public Libraries are individually funded by their local authority, but PLNZ is the overarching nationwide organisation for public libraries. All donations will be used to support the broader vision for public libraries in New Zealand.
Curious about why people love libraries? Here’s why.
“I do not know where to begin. … the library is a wonderful, marvellous, and miraculous place. It is free for anyone to enjoy, no matter what culture, religion, or country you are from. When you are at the library you all know you have something in common…a love of books!”
“While I love to go to the library for books, the library also serves as an after-school safe haven, a digital learning centre, an employment help centre, and so much more.”
“The library is like a second home to me. It is wonderful having access to so many different books, expanding my knowledge and imagination. I feel comfortable reading, hanging out, and doing homework at the library. I can be myself in the library, a place that gives me a break from the craziness of life.”
“I’m now librarian myself… I am happy to do all I can to help support the wonderful work libraries do….”
“Librarians are the unsung heroes of our community. They seriously rock!”
