We can help with specialist Māori information and research.
We offer the largest
Māori research and reference collection in a public library. There is a separate
kohinga Māori in most libraries and our staff can help you find what you're looking for.
We have specialist staff who can provide
whakapapa, research or history for
iwi. We offer one-on-one or group
whakapapa sessions and training on
Māori databases and our website. You can arrange an appointment to see our
Māori specialists in person. Māori-speaking staff are also available to travel to your
marae or community centre.
We organise events and activities that have a Māori
kaupapa. These include:
Māori resources training
te reo Māori storytimes
Māori arts and crafts demonstrations
te reo classes
kaupapa Māori lectures.
Some libraries have areas designated for
wānanga to take place, including the
Whare Wānanga in the
Central City Library.
A variety of meeting rooms can also be utilised for study,
hui and research – check with your local library.
