Library at Level-2

The library is open with some adaptations to comply with the Level 2 regulations.

  • Sign-in or scan-in, mask-wearing, 2m social distancing are required.  We encourage library users to make use of hand-sanitiser and to limit their time in the library to 30 mins or less.
  • Wi-Fi is available and there are 3 APNK computers available on a first-come first-serve basis.
  • For the time being, we are not running any programmes or events.

Click & Collect Service

‘Click and Collect’ is up and running for those who would like books but prefer to maintain greater social distancing.

Option 1. If you want to select your books online.

Download our Westland District Library app or go to our online catalogue and Log In using your library card number and PIN/password (call us if you have forgotten your password). Browse or search for books and click ‘place hold’ for books you want. Your books will be available from the issues desk the following day or if you prefer you can call us to arrange a collection time for contactless pickup.

Option 2. If you prefer to talk to us.

Call us, tell us how many books you want, the authors you like, the type of story or genre that you prefer, and library staff will make a selection for you to collect at a pre-arranged time.


If you would like some help with your mobile phone or tablet, perhaps help to download the NZ Covid-tracer App or to use the library e-resources, we are here to help.  Book a free 30-minute help session with a librarian.  We are here to help you get online and get connected.
