This library is in a big building with several floors in city centre, and mixed with other local government or organisation functions, including Citizen Advice Bureau and Cafe. A bit mix, busy and full with other activities unlike an old style simple pure library. Anyway...More

I really appreciate Wellington City Library service. Good range for all age group. lots of variety. Enough place to sit and browse books before taking them home. Very flexible return drop box option. Separate kids account is much better option.

This is a fairly standard modern city library, well stocked with books, periodicals, audio materials etc. Note that if you enter from the civic square you go straight into the cafe and have to exit it to enter the library proper.
