Auckland Libraries: Join the library: adults

Join the library: adults

Hono ki te whare pukapuka: taipākeke

You can get a free adult membership if you are over 18 and living in Auckland, or pay rates on a property in Auckland.

It takes just three easy steps to join the library.

  • Fill out the online registration form ('Join now' below).
  • At any of our libraries, show us a personal identification (Drivers Licence, Passport, Credit Card, 18+ card or Community Services card) and a bill or statement as proof of address.
  • Get a library card.



If you have no proof of address, we can give you a temporary starter membership. This membership allows you to borrow a limit of two items at a time.

If you are physically unable to visit a library and have no one to get items for you, you can use our Housebound delivery service. Email us to enquire.
