Ngā Kete Wānanga o Ōtautahi | Christchurch City Libraries are all about connecting people, inspiring discovery and enriching communities. We provide programmes, facilities and resources, so that you can access a world of ideas and imagination. You can use our spaces to study, create, have fun or meet with other people.
Te Kete Wānanga o Karoro | New Brighton Library is located on the beach and has extraordinary views out to the South Pacific Ocean. We have a collection of books, magazines and AV materials for all ages that you are welcome to borrow. Find out more about te Tiriti o Waitangi and te ao Māori in Ngā Pounamu Māori and many other cultures in our wider collections. There are also free computers and a suite of creative technologies, like a 3D printer and a direct to garment printer. Our team is here to help you use any or all of our resources although you may just want to sit and enjoy the view. This building also gives access to the Pier.
