Libraries Aotearoa represents all New Zealand libraries. From school to academic, from public to specialist, we're one powerful network, able to guide our country on its journey towards knowledge.
Libraries and librarians are on the vanguard of something new. In a world overflowing with data and reference material, stored in many forms and with endless pathways to explore, libraries have assumed a new importance.
Libraries Aotearoa strengthens New Zealand communities by recognising and facilitating every individual's journey from information to knowledge. The search for knowledge isn't like a search for "a place. Journey's end is defined by the traveler, not a map.
It's a network of professionals you can trust; people you can build a relationship with and Kiwis who care about our future.
