Library news

Stock availability

Store is open and most Store items are now available.

  • While libraries are closed, items in those collections are not available to be borrowed.
  • Items which are unavailable should now have their status in catalogue records as Currently inaccessible. The only exception to this is stock held at ‘LRS’. Unfortunately we are unable to change the status of this stock from Available to Currently inaccessible. In time this stock will become available once more.
  • Holds may be placed on items held at closed libraries and will be delivered to you when the item becomes available. Your hold will not expire, but may not be delivered for some time.
  • Please contact us if you have questions.

We apologise for any inconvenience.

eResources access

Please note that non-city library members can access all electronic resources except where specifically excluded by the terms of Christchurch City Libraries’ contractual agreements with those suppliers. For more information see our Membership policy.
