Overview
Ngā Kete Wānanga o Ōtautahi | Christchurch City Libraries is all about connecting people, inspiring discovery, and enriching communities. We provide programmes, facilities and resources so that you can access a world of ideas and imagination. You can use our spaces to study, create, have fun or meet with other people. Te Kete Wānanga o Waitiki | Parklands Library is located next to Parklands shopping centre. The library is a place to meet friends and chat, take time out to read and relax, seek information, browse, learn technology skills, and for families to spend time learning and having fun. Find out more about te Tiriti o Waitangi and te ao Māori in Ngā Pounamu Māori and many other cultures in our wider collections. Our team is here to help you use any or all of our resources although you may just want to sit and enjoy the onsite cafe, Green Bear Parklands.
