Borrowing from SMART libraries 

You can borrow from any of the libraries in the SMART Library group. Magazines need to be collected from the Library that owns the magazine.

Reserve an item 

You can: place reservations, collect a reserve, change the location to pick up your reservations, reserve books or puzzles from the catalogue and have them put aside for you to collect.


Note that to access the SMART catalogue, you'll need to search Porirua Library's catalogue first. Link straight through to our library catalogue.
