A boutique mobile library service is currently in operation. It carries a reduced selection of books which include fiction, large print and magazine titles. Customers are invited to request titles via the library catalogue
and they will be delivered to their regular stop!
A brand new Mobile Library will be on the road by the end of May.
Puke Ariki's Mobile Library bus brings books to your doorstep!
A selection of fiction, non-fiction, large print, audio books and magazines for adults and children are carried on board for browsing, or an item can be requested from Puke Ariki or any Community Library and bought to a convenient stop (there is a $1.50 fee for this service).
No library card? No problem! Just bring a form of ID and proof of address and a card can be issued straight away.
The bus travels as far north as Tongapoutu and Ratapiko in the south - bringing books to around 1, 500 people each month.
The Mobile Library can be booked for school, kindergarten and Kohanga Reo visits, or other events – call (06) 7596060 for more information.
