Helensville Library and Service Centre update for May

The library and service centre team are focussing on NZ Music Month this May.

Our displays will feature local, national, and international music acts in Aotearoa New Zealand.

The Learn-A-Craft sessions, held as part of our Adult Crafternoons, will also be music-themed. (Donations of old, unwanted, and scrappy musical scores are welcome.) IMAGE: C’MON Tour Poster Auckland Libraries Heritage Collections Eph-Post00437

Regular events:

Crafternoon: Thursdays at 3.30pm. We have sessions for both adults and children.  These sessions are a chance to learn new skills, teach others, and chat.

Kids Time: Wednesdays, 10am to 10.30am.  Under 6s and their grown-ups are invited to share songs, rhymes, and stories.

Book Chat: Fourth Thursday of the month at 10am. A chance to share books you’ve read and enjoyed – or read and hated! – with fellow readers. This will be on Thursday 25 May at 10am.

Getting in contact: Recent events have shown that we need to get contact details for Council agencies more widely known.

Some of you may have direct dial numbers for the Helensville Library and / or the Helensville Service Centre, as they have been previously published.

The Helensville Library and Service Centre is open 9.30am to 5pm Monday to Friday, and 9.30am to 4pm on Saturday. We often don’t make it to the phone in time, particularly in the Service Centre, as we are dealing with other customers. If you want to be sure that someone will help you, please use these numbers:
