Library Life

Library Life: Te Rau Herenga O Aotearoa is our monthly magazine for the library and information sector in Aotearoa New Zealand.

The magazine features an inspiring and refreshing mix of debate, discussion and interactive content from throughout the profession as well as news, updates from LIANZA, and details of industry events, conferences and seminars.

Established as a newsletter in 1932, Library Life is currently undergoing a 2018 'facelift'. We're planning on launching the updated new-look Library Life in September 2018. If you would like to contribute an article in the meantime, you can either email or submit online.  

Library Life is available online via PressReader, in a format which includes sound, bookmarking and sharing tools as well as the ability to view offline.

There are even mobile apps to read Library Life while on the go! Welcome to the future!
