Note that to access the SMART catalogue, you'll need to search Porirua Library's catalogue first. Link straight through to our library catalogue.
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.
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.
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.
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.
There are many cool things you can do with our catalogue, from setting up alerts so you know when the new pukuapuka come in, to deep delving into the specialist collections. Let us walk you through the different search options, and other features.
