"Kāpiti Coast District Libraries will always be a place of joy and discovery, enriching the lives and cultural experiences of our community."  

From 1 October 2014, anyone living, working, owning property or studying on the Kāpiti Coast can join the Kāpiti Coast District Libraries at no charge and use the resources of all of our SMART libraries.

Horowhenua residents who do not meet the above criteria can still join Kāpiti Coast District Libraries and enjoy free use of all of our services and resources.

Anyone who is not in either of these categories can either join Kāpiti Coast District Libraries as a subscription member ($60 for six months or $120 per annum per household), or pay $2 per item issued.

This Week in NZ History

October 2 1986

"Slice of Heaven" - Dave Dobbyn's hit song from the film Footrot Flats: The Dog's Tale - hit No1 on the NZ charts. It featured Herbs singing a cappella and spent 25 weeks in the charts (eight weeks at number one!). A pure slice of Kiwiana...and a love song for Cheeky.
