The Johnsonville library is one of the largest branches, serving the northern suburbs extending from Newlands to Churton Park.
The library collection offers a range of different material including fiction, non-fiction, children's and young adult collections, large print books, bestsellers, magazines, Maori collection, adult learning (ESOL), comics, and online databases. We also have a Chinese collection and some foreign magazines.
A range of fun and inspiring programs and events, catering for customers of all ages, have been developed for the library. These range from Baby Rock & Rhyme to senior Tea & Tales; from coding clubs to Let’s go Lego sessions.Current Library services include the sale of WCC rubbish bags, recycling bags, daily or monthly parking coupons and recycling bins. Customers can also use the internet service with free WIFI access.
We’re building a new two-storey library which will be three times larger than the current library. The new library will offer flexible, modern spaces complemented by the latest technology; as well as a makerspace – a creative, collaborative space dedicated to hands-on activity and learning.
There will be a café on the second floor, and we are currently seeking expressions of interest from café operators to partner with us.
The library is currently located at 5 Broderick Road, Johnsonville
