The Auckland National Library Centre is an excellent place to stop by, grab a book, sit down and start enjoying your choice. A clean place, with plenty of subjects to dig in. Nice place to be when it rains. You can spend a whole afternoon reading your favorites. My choice? " Everyone marries the wrong person" Pleasure reading.

Great ranges of resourses. Easy accessibility. Easy access to ordering books and dvds online and also the ease of posting or picking up books and media from any library in the Auckland area of your choice! Fab staff also.
