Upper Hutt Library

Upper Hutt Library's experiment with new technology and community particpation to preserve local knowledge history has made them the hub of the community.

Upper Hutt City Library is not a traditional public library as most people would expect.  It has become the hub of the Upper Hutt community and whilst it still provides the fundamental library services it also offers much more with at least 70 programmes running. The Library caters for the younger, more digitally savvy audience through to those with more life experience.
