Find out about fees and charges for library collections and services.
On 1 September 2021, we removed overdue fines on customers’ library accounts. You will not be fined for returning items after the due date. This doesn't include inter-library loan overdue fines. See Inter-library loan charges below.
Please take good care of any items you borrow. If you lose or damage a library item, please tell us as soon as possible. The cost to replace the item will be charged. Contact us
You get charged for each side you print. If it's double-sided, you pay double.
Charges apply to in-depth research, including
whakapapa and family history, as well as for the retrieval and supply of articles, including community newspapers.
The first 30 minutes is free for full Auckland Libraries members. After the first 30 minutes, there is a charge of $25 per half hour. For non-members, a charge of $25 per half hour will apply.
Any photocopying, printing and postage charges are additional.
