Winter with Auckland Libraries
If you want to escape the harsh winter weather, pop into your local library to kick back and relax! Browse the shelves, charge your phone, connect to the free WiFi, listen to a Book Bite or find a comfy couch and hunker down for an hour or two.
Rānui and Devonport Library even have their own fireplaces, so make yourself at home!
A friendly reminder that all of our libraries across Tāmaki Makaurau offer free wireless internet access (WiFi), including mobile libraries. Bring in your laptop, tablet or smartphone to access the internet. If you don’t have your own device, you can use our public computers.
Head to your local library to make the most of your working day and give yourself a change of scene. Whether you work from home or don’t have an established office space, we have free WiFi, bookable meeting rooms, printing services, dedicated office seating and couches available for any type of worker.
While you’re in the library, why not check out our broad range of regular events that take place throughout the week. From book clubs and coffee catch-ups to Kōrero Māori groups and craft workshops, there’s something for every Aucklander to enjoy this winter!
Although Auckland Libraries provide safe and warm locations, it’s important to make sure your own whare is too.
Our free Home Energy Audit Toolkit (HEAT kits) contains practical tools and tips to help make your home healthier, warmer and environmentally friendly while saving money for your whānau.
Search ‘Heat kit’ in the library catalogue to request a kit to take home for two weeks.
