Visit us

Bring your class to the library for a story, to grab some books, as part of an Education Outside the Classroom programme or to add depth to an inquiry. Our fabulous librarians can pick some popular books to read to your tamariki, or if you let them know in advance, they can help with a topic your class is exploring.

Please email or phone us well in advance to check availability, so we can cater to your learning objectives, and help your students make the most of your visit. You can book one-off visits, or a regular slot.

We can come to you

We are a library without walls, and outreach is one of our specialties. Our librarians are keen to visit your school to talk about books and the library, read to your students, help mark literary celebrations, and inspire your staff.
