    Question:What if I need to access the physical copy of the book (as it’s not available in the library online collection) What can I do?

  • Kingsley Melhuish commented on 28/04/2020

    Kia ora, I presume the request function for physical books on the website was deactivated due to Covid level 4 restrictions. Does this change under level 3, can we click and collect books? If so, can you please advise how this can be done?
    I also have books to return.

    Hi there,
    Are you able to put up a post about library access/services at Level 2?
    Planning ahead for next week.
