Pacific people in New Zealand are represented by at least 13 distinct languages and cultural groups. Almost two-thirds (65.9 percent or 194,958 people) of those who identified with at least one Pacific ethnicity live in Auckland.

Pacific peoples are the third largest ethnic group in Auckland, after European at 59.3 per cent and the Asian ethnic group at 23.1 per cent. The Pacific community is a young community with over a third aged 15 and under.

Auckland Libraries offer all Aucklanders the opportunity to celebrate with our Pacific communities and their cultures and traditions.

These celebrations for all include guest speakers, Pacific art exhibitions, story times, demonstrations and craft workshops across Auckland Libraries.
