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

We’ll be closed – Labour Day

All Kāpiti Coast District Libraries will be closed on Monday 27 October for Labour Day.

There will also be an upgrade to our library system on Labour Day, and our website and catalogue will be unavailable.

Membership - Update

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.

October 24 1913
