St Heliers Library temporary closure

St Heliers Library exterior

From 1 August, St Heliers Library will be undergoing works for earthquake strengthening, a new roof and internal refurbishment.

While these works are underway, most library services will be available at Tāmaki Ex-Services Association Hall on the corner of Polygon Road and Turua Street, St Heliers. 

We hope to have temporary library services running from 2 August.

The work on the St Heliers Library building will take approximately 10 months and is supported by Ōrākei Local Board. Read more on Our Auckland.
