Temporary Closure of Puke Ariki

NPDC has reviewed Puke Ariki operations following the Government’s announcement on the COVID-19 alert level, all Puke Ariki and Community Library facilities are to close until further notice. We will not be processing interloans during this time.


There is a charge for the interloan service, it ranges from $5 to $22 per item. The charge covers the courier to return the item and any other costs passed on to us by the lending library. We ask you to indicate how much you are prepared to pay for the service in the form below. You will need to pay the charge when you pick up your item.


We process interloan requests within a week of receiving the request. The time it takes to receive an item varies widely, it can be anywhere from the next day to a month. We often do not know how long it will take when we process the order. We will let you know once the item is at the library.

The issue period varies between libraries. 

Temporary Closure of Puke Ariki

Following the Government’s announcements on public gatherings, we have decided to temporarily close Puke Ariki. While Puke Ariki is closed we will still be processing interloan requests but you will now need to select one of the community libraries for pick up.
