Magazines.

Our magazine collection provides a range of general, popular and special interest New Zealand and international magazines for relaxation and enjoyment. It also supplements the non-fiction book collections in some subjects.  We try to be as responsive as possible to local community trends and interests.  

Our branch libraries and the Mobile Library all have a selection of magazines tailored to their communities. All loan copies of magazines are available to request from any of our Library locations.

We cover a large range of topics and all age groups:

  • For adults the current issues for each magazine are available for 3 day loan. These magazines cannot be renewed nor can requests be placed on them.

    Previous issues are available to borrow for 2 weeks, can be renewed and requested.

  • Māori magazines at Whangarei Central Library include 'Mana' available for loan from the main magazine area downstairs. Back copies 'Tu Mai', 'Te Karaka' and 'Mana' are located in the Māori Room for reference only.
