Christmas Hours

All Tauranga City Libraries will be closed on December 25, 26 and on January 1, 2 (we will also be closed from 12pm on December 24).

Please note: We’ve noticed that Ngā Wāhi Rangahau/Research Collections gets a little quieter over Christmas/New Year’s, so we will be trialling summer hours this season.

Ngā Wāhi Rangahau/Research Collections will be closed on the following days over a three-week period:  December 22-26, December 29-January 2 and January 5-6.

We will be open on December 21, December 27,28 and January 3,4. Normal opening hours will resume on Monday, January 7.

Come and visit us at any of our five convenient locations. All Tauranga City libraries share collections. This means that if you belong to one library, you belong to them all. If a lendable item you want is located at another Tauranga library, simply place a Hold, and the item will be transferred to your chosen branch for pickup. Easy! You are welcome to borrow from one branch, and return to another, including the Mobile library.

All Tauranga City libraries are closed on public holidays
