Join the Library

Let your imagination flow. Join the library.

Joining is easy

Fill in our online registration form (click here!)  to get your temporary library membership number. This will allow you to borrow our e-books and online resources as much as you like for two weeks.

Before your temporary membership expires, you'll need to visit your nearest district library branch to pick up your new library card and check your details are correct.

You only need to bring three things:

  1. Photo ID (eg. passport, driver's licence, ID card)
  2. A document confirming your New Zealand postal address (eg. power bill or bank statement)
  3. $2.00 for the library card.

Once we've sighted your details and attached your new card to your account, you'll be all set up and ready to go!

What if you are only visiting?

If you are visiting the area and would like to borrow items from the library, you can purchase a temporary subscription for $20 for up to three months.
