Using your Porirua Library card, log in and you can borrow a digital book from ePukapuka for a period of seven days, 14 days or 21 days – you choose. You can borrow up to 10 digital books at once. If the item you want is out, you can reserve it and you will be notified when it is available to borrow, easy!
Please contact our Housebound Library Assistant
or speak to staff at your local library.
The service is free and covers the whole of Porirua.
We can discuss your preferences when you apply.
If you are able to make your own way to the library, or get a friend to do it for you, there are other options available that aren't the full housebound service.
