New eResource: Story Box Library

We’ve recently added Story Box Library to our collection of eResources available to access free with your library card!

Story Box Library is the best place to watch celebrated stories read aloud by our favourite storytellers from Australia and New Zealand. It’s a fantastic literary resource for preschool through to upper primary-aged children, featuring a range of actors, sportspeople, authors, illustrators and more sharing their unique voices in an ever-growing library. It's storytime, anytime!

View our eResources to find more great digital resources you can access for free, or visit to Story Box Library and start a storytime at home.

Update to PressReader

Stuff Ltd. is changing the digital distribution of their content. From 1 November some New Zealand newspaper titles (including Sunday Star Times, Dominion Post and The Press) will no longer be available to download in the PressReader App. For a full list of affected titles please visit eResources.

However, the good news is you’ll still be able to access these titles through the PressReader website.

If you have any questions please kōrero with staff at your local library or email us at
