Summer hours

Summer hours trial

We’ve noticed that the library and the Reading Rooms get a little quieter over summer so we will be trialling summer hours from 1 December 2018 to 23 February 2019.

What this means is:

  • the Reading Rooms on the first floor will be closed on Saturdays
  • the National Library, including the space and Home café will be open from 9am to 1pm Saturday
  • Monday to Friday services will remain the same and are not affected by the summer hours.

Come and visit on Saturday morning to see the exhibitions and experience the magic of the award-winning He Tohu exhibition.

If you would like to give us feedback about our summer hours you can email us at
