Te ara māmāAccessibility
At Puke Ariki accessibility is very important to us. We want everyone in the community to be able to enjoy our museum and libraries.
Visiting Puke Ariki
Access for People who Can't Visit Us
Both the Housebound Readers service and the Museum in a Suitcase are suspended until further notice. Current users of the Housebound Readers service will be contacted individually.
Housebound Readers Service
Are you unable to visit the library because of age, illness or disability? Then you may be eligible for our Housebound Readers Service.
We have a fantastic group of volunteers who will select books or audiobooks for you and deliver them to you at home.
Museum in a Suitcase
Museum in a Suitcase brings the wonderful objects of Puke Ariki to your group. This programme is mainly targeted at people in rest homes and retirement villages who are unable to visit the Museum. Our volunteers bring a suitcase full of treasures and present them to your group to look at, interact with and discuss.
To find out more about Museum in a Suitcase contact us.
Puke Ariki members who have a print disability are encouraged to use the BookLink web portal or app.
BookLink provides access to the Blind Foundation Library's digital collection.
More information on BookLink is available on the Blind Foundation website.
