This page has information about what's on at the Porirua Library and our branches.
Following the success of our recent My Name is Not Refugee event, an international cast of poets are back to turn Porirua Library into the centre of the world again. Join us for an evening of verses about coming here and living here, from migrants, former refugees, and Aotearoa New Zealand residents. Enjoy readings, competitions, a word choir, a collective poem, food and mingle time, at City Centre Library, August 23, 5.30PM. All of Us is an official Phantom Billstickers National Poetry Day (eve) event, in association with Landing Press and Porirua Library. You can read more about it at Bee's Bookish Blog.
Sale of fiction and non-fiction. Prices from 50c.
Do you like knitting? Are you interested in speaking Te Reo Māori ?
Tuia Te Reo is a Porirua-based knitting circle that meets once a month at Porirua Library. They provide a supportive, total immersion environment for learning and practicing Te Reo Māori while enjoying the arts.
They are currently working towards creating items for Wesley Community Action and would love some keen, committed knitters to help with quality pieces to donate at the end of the sessions!
If you would like to join these sessions, please email email@example.com to receive your registration form and information pānui (which helps Tuia Te Reo gauge your level of te reo and prepare for the session).
Make sure to bring some wool and a smile!

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!
For more information, call Whitby Library on (04) 234 8666.
