This page has information about what's on at the Porirua Library and our branches.
These school holidays, Porirua Library's Read Around the World programme for young readers will feature global-themed story times (including gorgeous books from the exciting new publisher Tiny Owl) at Porirua Library – on April 18, 20, 26 and 28, at 10.30AM - and fun challenges at Whitby and Cannons Creek Libraries.
The Porirua, Cannons Creek and Whitby branches are also looking forward to welcoming special guest, award-winning children’s author Gillian Candler, as the New Zealand representative of the world, on April 19 (10.30AM at Porirua Library, 1.30PM at Cannons Creek Library, and 3.30PM at Whitby Library). Meet New Zealand native birds and other animals. Can you guess a bird from its beak? Or an animal from its feet? Find out in this book and craft session. Gillian will share her books Whose Beak is This? and Whose Feet are These?, and show you how to make a sticky-footed gecko or Kiwi book corner.
This programming replaces our regular Story World and Baby Band sessions at Porirua Library for the duration of the holidays. Please phone 2371533 to advise of large groups, or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. We look forward to reading and creating with you.

Come to Whitby Library with your knitting, crochet, embroidery, hand sewing, tatting or anything that involves yarn or thread and join us for a free cuppa and a yarn while we work on our projects, share ideas, tips and patterns.
Our popular sessions now meet twice a month at the Whitby Library on the first and third Thursday of every month from 10.15 until 11.15. We provide a cuppa - all you need to do is bring along your project. Best of all, it's free!
