Auckland Libraries: Browse the basement

Browse the basement

Every Sunday 4pm to 5pm Free

Here is a rare opportunity to explore the enormous stack collection, located in our vast, multi-level basement facility at Central City Library.

Discover strange curiosities, browse for your favourite authors or simply marvel at the wealth of material acquired over more than a century of collecting. This is a chance to see and borrow some of the incredible books that aren't on display on our public floors, and to experience the mysterious and magical qualities of the Central City Library basement. 

There are limited spaces available for each session. Please meet our librarians at the main desk on the ground floor before 4pm. The basement tour will begin after a short health & safety briefing. 

Check out our podcast Uncovered: The Basement on the Auckland Libraries Soundcloud.
