“Great selection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Joined in July and used the library for the six months I lived in Wellington. They had a wonderful selection and the system was easy to use. I really enjoyed the listing of New Zealand authors by genre and focused on reading them.

It's a comfortable environment for browsing, but they have a huge collection of books. You're sure to find what you're looking for.

“Food and great coffee served in lovely china”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

We enjoyed the muffins and the coffee was excellent. We were close to the harbour and also a short walk to town so very conveniently located. We were there for our daughter's graduation and it was warm and inviting inside.

“Friendly staff- no free wifi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Great place to study- lack of internet only a problem, most places have it free now- even the waterfront!

“Nice layout, nice view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

It has everything you need in a library, plus on a blustery Wellington day it has a calm place to relax, read a book and enjoy looking out over civic square without being blown away! There's also a cafe in there.
