The Palmerston North City Library and it’s Community Library branches recently completed a survey on our open hours and thanks to your feedback we are making some trial changes to our opening hours.

We’ll still be open 7 days a week at the Central Library but with slightly different hours, and we’ll be open more often at the Community Libraries in Awapuni, Ashhurst, Roslyn and at Te Patikitiki.
