The graffiti along the side of the building doesn't help, but this is at best an average looking building. There's a small collection of books inside. Possibly one area which could be addressed in future aid projects.

Great to see so many good books for young readers and to hear about the staff of NZ High Commission leading reading for young kids. A good place to donate some good quality books if you can

Staff was helpful and although it isn't up to par with other National Libraries/Archives, management makes an effort to work on keeping it a good source of information for students and researchers.
