Hours & locations

Porirua City Centre library hours are changing. From 20 July 2020, the City Centre Library will open from 9.30 am to 5.30 pm, Monday to Friday. We will no longer be open until 8.00 pm on a Thursday. This is as a result of feedback from our customers. The City Centre library weekend hours remain the same. Our City Centre Library is currently open Monday to Sunday except public holidays. We have four libraries out in our communities too – each with its own personality and opening hours.
