St Heliers Library
Our collection includes a wide range of adult fiction and non-fiction books, large print and audio books, magazines, DVDs, and a teens collection. We also have books in French, Chinese, and Spanish. The New Zealand Herald is delivered to the library every day, and we have several weeks of back issues to consult while you’re there.
Our wonderful children’s area has board-books for toddlers, picture books and junior fiction, easy-readers, audio-books, VOX books and graphics, children’s DVDs and music CDs, and non-fiction books. We hold Storytime for preschoolers four times a week including a Saturday; Wriggle and Rhyme for babies twice a week; and Rhyme Time for toddlers on a Tuesday.
We offer free internet access with 10 public computers available for library members and visitors, and free Wi-Fi inside the Library. Book a librarian if you need help with Auckland Libraries digital services and the friendly St Heliers Library staff are always happy to help you with your printing.
Every Saturday from 10am to 12pm we have a Justice of the Peace service at the library. No appointment necessary.
We host various activities such as book clubs, mindful colouring for adults, writers’ group and knitting group for adults as well as Minecraft, Lego Club and craft hours for children. See our timetable:
Our school holiday activities are always fun and almost always free! Its best to register for these though as they ARE popular.
Drop-in for an hour or so of knitting or crochet, either with your own project or using our donated wool and needles/hooks. All ages welcome.
