Bag check

You are welcome to bring your bags into the Library, though we ask you to be careful and considerate. We also operate a secure bag check facility where your belongings can be looked after while you use the Library.

Internet access

We provide computers with broadband internet access to help visitors conduct their research.

Free wireless (WiFi) internet access is available in the Reading Room, through FreeNet Aotearoa. FreeNet is a system of sharing unused broadband with others in your neighbourhood, providing open wireless access to everyone.

To connect to FreeNet, click on Start, Settings, Network connections, and the FreeNet connection will show up. You do not need a password.

Find out more information on the FreeNet Aotearoa website.


Photocopiers are available. Some rarer and more fragile items need to be photocopied by Library staff.
