The public libraries of seven former councils in the Auckland region amalgamated and became Auckland Libraries on 1 November 2010.
You can use your existing library card at any of the 55 library branches and 4 mobile libraries. Borrow and return items to any library from Wellsford to Waiheke to Waiuku.
Joining Auckland Libraries is free for residents and ratepayers of the Auckland Council region.

Over the last two months, a process of moving selected content from the former council library websites to a central Auckland Libraries website has been underway.
When the work is completed early in 2013, visitors to former council library websites such as this one will be automatically redirected to the new Auckland Libraries website. This will mean there is one online destination for all information and services relating to libraries.
Some new features have been introduced to enhance and improve the revised Auckland Libraries website. These include:
We appreciate your patience during these changes, which we are confident will deliver positive results.
Following the establishment of Auckland Council in 2010 the Auckland Libraries website was built to sit alongside the former council library websites: Rodney, Waitakere, Manukau, Auckland City, North Shore, Franklin and Papakura.
Between now and the end of the year, the content of those websites will be moved to the Auckland Libraries website. From January 2013, visitors to the former council library websites will be automatically redirected to the Auckland Libraries website.
Following this work, all our online information and services, from the catalogue to information about what's happening at the libraries, will be accessible from Auckland Libraries website.
You can also look forward to some enhancements to the website, including:
As content is moved your bookmarks will no longer work. We recommend you update these to bookmark this website.
If you can’t find what you’re looking for, contact us and we can help you.
We are confident from your feedback that the move of all content to a single website will make your online experience at Auckland Libraries simpler and better. We appreciate your patience as we make these changes.
Some Auckland Libraries fees will be inflation adjusted by 3.3 per cent from 1 August 2012.
The changes follow a review of all council fees and charges as part of the draft Long-term Plan (2012-2022).
Most other council non-regulatory charges and fees are also changing.
This increase applies to all charges which currently amount to $2 or more. Charges currently under $2, such as our overdue charges, will not change.
Changes to the following fees and charges will apply from 1 August 2012:
