Best Auckland libraries
There is nothing better than curling up with a good book.
A trip to your local library opens a world of fiction, planning your next holiday or a place to take the kids for fun free activities. Here is our pick of the best Auckland libraries to visit. Waiuku Waiuku Library south of central Auckland is known for it’s great service from friendly librarians who handily bundle up suggested best reads according to genre. All you need do is pick up a pre-stacked pile of books. And after that, why not a stroll along the Waiuku main street which offers a range of cafes and an historic pub. Kaukapakapa So, the range of books here may not be extensive. But as one of the smallest libraries in New Zealand Kaukapakapa library is well worth a visit purely for the history. It was originally constructed in 1911 and has been relocated several times in its life but has always stayed close to Kaukapakapa School. Piha For communities on the West Coast of Auckland, the Piha library is a gem. Nestled against the backdrop of one of the region’s most popular beaches the library offers a range of books and DVDS for locals and picturesque scenery. Central City An Auckland institution, the Central City library has moved with the times and is treasured by residents. The kids space is an excellent facility, the tree hut on the lower level a much loved addition. Devonport Architecturally designed, the Devonport Library is a great place to visit. Fitting with the nautical location, the design creates a cosy and welcoming atmosphere. Take out a book, set yourself up in the park near the beach and enjoy reading in the winter sun.
