Back before the Internet, there were these magnificent things called books - hand-held portals of entertainment and education that delighted and informed people in equal measure.
At Auckland Central Public Library, you'll find shelves upon shelves of books, magazines, DVDs, and CDs encompassing every topic imaginable. They're free to borrow once you sign up with a library card, and once you join you also have access to the Auckland City Council network of libraries across the city. Free Wi-Fi is also available, and there's also a cafe where you can sip an espresso while catching up on your reading.

It's never too early (or too late) to get your kids stuck into reading! The theme for these school holidays is 'Horrible Histories and Heroes', and all the branches of the Auckland Libraries will be hosting tons of great activities, for free! Go online to find out more about what's on at which locations. Make sure to swing by the Central City branch to check out their fantastic new fit-out of the children's area too.
Even if another library is closer to where you live, take the time to visit the Auckland Central library. Browse the masses of books, ride the escalator up and down, get a coffee, play with the microfiche machine, maybe even do some reading. It’s a great place to spend some quiet time, to people watch, and to learn a thing or two about anything you want.
