Heritage and family history research
We offer family history research and Māori research into land, whakapapa and history. People unable to visit the Central Auckland Research Centre in person can telephone us with research requests on 09 307 7771 or email us.
You can use any of the six microfilm/microfiche reader-printers to read the newspapers in the Central Auckland Research Centre.
These are bookable for one-hour sessions prior to coming into the centre. However if not all the reader-printers are in use you can extend your session.
Please call the Central Auckland Research Centre on 09 307 7771 or email us to make a booking.
Free electronic scans
You can take an electronic scan of an article or page of a newspaper and save the scanned pages as TIFF files onto a USB memory stick for free.
Please supply your own memory sticks as we do not sell them at the library.
The Central Auckland Research Centre has heritage stationery (e.g. family history notebooks, pedigree charts) as well as general stationery plus council and library publications (e.g. Real Gold: Treasures of Auckland City Libraries) for purchase.
