You can book one-on-one time with a librarian to get help with computer skills, accessing resources, creating a CV, research and more. Ask at your local library or fill out our online form. Book a librarian

JP and CAB services

Most of our libraries have a service desk where a Justice of the Peace (JP) is available to the public. Check the JP schedule at your library.

Many of our libraries also have a Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB). Check if there is a CAB at your library.

Please note

JP and CAB services operate separately from Auckland Libraries. Please visit their websites to view their hours or find other locations.
