Community Libraries

In Palmerston North we don’t have just 1 Library, we have 6!!  Along with our big Central Library we have 4 Community Libraries and 1 Mobile Library.  You will find the Community Libraries dotted around our city with the Awapuni Library in with the College Street shops, Te Patikitiki next to Monrad park, Roslyn Library with the Vogel Street shops, and the Ashhurst Library in an old 120 year old Post Office building on the main street in Ashhurst.  Each location is a mini Central library offering a collection of books for children, youth and adults.  They also run regular preschool childrens sessions, school holiday programmes, and lots of varied events for adults including morning teas and book launches.

The Mobile Library has 28 regular stops around the city and visits many of our local schools.  You can find the timetable on our website.
