Welcome to Libraries Aotearoa
Libraries Aotearoa was developed by LIANZA – the Library and Information Association of New Zealand Aotearoa – in partnership with the library sector. It represents all libraries and provides one powerful network guiding our country on its journey to knowledge.
Here you will find latest news, information, research, statistics and trends from the library sector. This site is a work in progress, which will continue to grow as new research comes to hand. Libraries Aotearoa is now home to Library Life – the go-to magazine for New Zealand librarians.
