In consultation with the National Crisis Management Centre, the Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment, District and City Councils and the National Librarian the decision was made to turn off the APNK public Wi-Fi from 31 March until further notice.

This decision was made to support the Alert Level 4 restrictions of encouraging community members to stay in their bubble and not congregate at public libraries to access the Wi-Fi.

Aotearoa People’s Network Kaharoa

The Aotearoa People’s Network Kaharoa (APNK) starts with a simple idea: that all New Zealanders should be able to access the online world using a good quality internet connection. In collaboration with New Zealand public libraries, APNK works to make this a reality by providing free and facilitated access to the internet and computer technology for all.

Libraries and their staff also benefit as they build their skills and knowledge of the online world and digital tools, and share this knowledge with their customers.
