Alexander Turnbull Library

National Library of New Zealand. Alexander Turnbull Library

Established in 1920 based on the collections bequeathed to the Crown by Alexander Horsburgh Turnbull in 1918. Located in Alexander Turnbull's previous home in Bowen Street, Wellington until 1973 when collections were moved temporarily to a building on The Terrace and later also in Ghuznee Street. Moved in 1987 into the newly built National Library building in Molesworth Street, Wellington. In 1965 the National Library Act joined together the Alexander Turnbull Library, the General Assembly Library, and the National Library Service to form the National Library of New Zealand.
