No more fines for children’s and teens’ items!

We want to empower our tamariki and rangatahi to engage with the world of knowledge available through our libraries.

So from 1 July items in our children's and teens' collections will no longer incur overdue fines! We'll also be removing all historical overdue fines on Library Accounts for these items.

For more information please visit Borrowing & Services.


Books & Brews

Sprig & Fern Wednesday 24 July, 6pm

Grab a drink and chat with others about your recent reads! Nothing is off the table. Talk about the books you loved… and the ones you hated. It’s YOUR book group (but we’ll bring along some cool titles to share). Our Content Specialist will be there (she buys all the books!) if you want to pepper her with questions.



Beyond the Page: Literary Festival for Tamariki and their Whānau (6-21 July)

Beyond the Page is back in its third year with over 100 events happening across the Wellington region during the school holidays (6-21 July).

This year we’re excited to have Donovan Bixley visiting us for a workshop, the Royal New Zealand Ballet taking us on a magical journey into the world of Hansel and Gretel, Toro Pikopiko sharing their interactive Māori rock-art puppetry show, and so much more. All are FREE and lots of fun!

For information on events across the region visit Beyond the Page or for events just around our local libraries visit Beyond the Page Hutt City.
