God Save the Queen

The long weekend is finally here and it's the last for a while which means we need to make the most of it- whatever we might be doing. The libraries are open until 7pm tonight and in the morning from 9am until 1pm as per normal, this gives you plenty of opportunity to pop in and grab a great read to enjoy over the long weekend. We will be closed on Monday but will be back to normal on Tuesday- don't forget toddler time at Matamata and Te Aroha libraries (and Wednesday in Morrinsville). Sit back, relax, grab a great book and have a fantastic long weekend!

Do you know your family secrets? can be accessed from our libraries for no charge at all. This service is available both on the APNK computers in the library and also on your own device when connected to the APNK wifi (which means this service is available 24/7). Both of these are free service thanks to the Aotearoa Peoples Network Kaharoa.

If you are interested in finding out more about your family history is a great place to start, you never know what you might uncover. Ancestry also has a speicial offer on this weekend where there is no charge for using any of their site wherever you have access to the internet.

If you would like more information and to start using then come down to your local library, you can find our hours here
