Artist's impression of Library auditorium

Venue hire

The National Library is a unique conference and events venue in the centre of Wellington’s government district, next to Parliament and the CBD. We have a new, state-of-the-art auditorium opening soon.

Bring people together in one of our many bookable spaces, then break out and explore the rest of the Library — the exhibitions, the café, quiet spaces, the shop, and much more.

New auditorium — opening mid-2018

Coming soon — a new event venue for performances, presentations, seminars, and conferences that includes break-out spaces.

The 172-seat, acoustically enhanced auditorium will have state-of-the-art audiovisual technology and is designed to amplify the ‘live voice’.

The auditorium will provide a unique, cultural heritage experience for your event like no other — with access to the multi-award winning He Tohu exhibition and bookable experiences to many of our taonga.
