Think you can’t get to the library? Oh, yes you can!

At the moment there are only a few libraries that are open. But don’t worry – our website is open all the time.  If you’ve read all of the books that you’ve got, head to the Kids pages  – we have plenty of stories for you to enjoy:

  • Start with Stories by New Zealand authors.  There’s heaps of them, by Fleur Beale, Gavin Bishop, Joy Cowley, Brian Falkner, Margaret Mahy and many other authors.  You can even add a comment and let us know what you thought of each one.
  • TumbleBooks Library is one of our cool, free e-book collections.  It has everything from picture books to classics like Black Beauty and Tom Sawyer.  You can read the stories yourself or read along while the story is read to you.  The picture books are animated –  so it’s like reading and watching a cartoon at the same time.  TumbleBooks also has word games and puzzles linked to the story that you can play.  You need to have your library card number and PIN.
  • We have a great list of stories, books and authors where you will find the websites of your favourite author or series, including Roald Dahl, Goosebumps, Narnia and Harry Potter.
  • Try the Space explorer for a fun trip around the solar system.

See? Even if your local library is shut, there’s plenty to do and read on the library website.
