Library Life

Library Life: Te Rau Herenga O Aotearoa is our bi-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 has recently had a 2018 'facelift' and the new-look Library Life was launched in September 2018.
