Becoming a member is easy, and free for Porirua residents – just fill in the online form, then drop into any of our libraries with some ID and proof of address, and you're good to go.

Housebound services 

Can’t get to the library? We have a free home delivery service if you can't physically visit a library branch.

Interloans & requests 

If we don't have what you need, we can probably borrow it from another library, including the National Library, as an interloan. Or if we think it'd be popular, we might buy it if you make a request.


How many books can I borrow? What are the fines if they're overdue? Why do we have a library? Answers to the bigger questions are in our policies.

Paying fees & charges 

You can pay in person at any location, or if you find it easier to pay online, make a simple internet banking transfer and you'll be good to go.
