2019 PLNZ National Forum Tūranga

2019 PLNZ National Forum Tūranga

PLNZ is the association for Public Library Managers. Together with our members, we develop national initiatives to ensure we are meeting the needs of our evolving communities.

From the larger metropolitan public libraries to the smaller community-based libraries and mobile units, PLNZ works to ensure we grow New Zealand’s role in the global information community and to take a leading role in creating a literate nation of readers.

Our members are responsible for more than 300 public libraries around the country. They are mandated to ensure all New Zealanders have access to library services, literacy and learning, as well as trusted information and knowledge.
