About Us


There is something for everyone at Hamilton City Libraries. With more than 400,000 items on offer, we provide you with access to a great range of books, DVDs, CDs, archives, magazines and newspapers. Through our website you can borrow eBooks, eAudiobooks and eMagazines as well as searching online newspaper and journal articles.

Borrowable items are issued free to members for 28 days, excluding magazines, CDs, DVDs and best sellers which are issued for 7 days, and eBooks and eAudiobooks which are issued for 14 days. An item normally stays at the library where it was returned until it is borrowed again. This way, new stock moves around the libraries, ensuring that each library has a constantly changing and updated collection.

Hamilton City's six libraries are:

⦿   Central - Te Kopu Mania o Kirikiriroa

⦿   Chartwell Library - Kukutaruhe

⦿   Dinsdale Library - Te Tiwha O Pareiiriwhare

⦿   Glenview Library - Mangakotukutuku

⦿   Hillcrest Library - Manga-o-nua

⦿   St Andrews Library - Waiwhereowhero
