If you're looking for something special, or just want to optimise your library visit, the catalogue is your friend. You don't need to be a member to use it for a quick search, but you'll need to log in to renew or reserve items, get alerts, ask for specialist help or check your account.


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

Check my card 

You can check your library account at any time right here. Login to our library system to see what you've got out, when they are due back, renew items, any overdues or fines, and to make reserves.

Borrowing from SMART libraries 

You can borrow from any of the libraries in the SMART Library group. So go ahead and extend your search to include not just Porirua, but also Hutt City, Masterton, Kapiti, Wellington Institute of Technology (WelTec), and Whitireia Libraries.

Reserve an item 

Get the books you want faster! You can reserve items directly from the catalogue, and pick them up from your nearest library.

Ask a librarian 

It can be a little daunting searching the library catalogue. If you can't find what you want, or are not sure even where to start, ask a librarian and we'll do our best to find you an answer within a couple of days.

Help using the catalogue
