Join the Library
Please visit one of our three libraries, and provide personal identification and proof that you reside in Nelson, Tasman or Marlborough, or that you are a ratepayer in Nelson City, Tasman District or Marlborough.
- Photo ID is preferable for personal identification, e.g. a driver's licence or passport.
- Proof of address should be "official" mail sent to you at your residential address, e.g. a telephone, electricity or rates account.
You will need to speak with one of our friendly staff and they will provide you with a library card and information pack. Joining the library takes about 10 minutes.
If you are under 18, you will need to be accompanied to the library by a guarantor who must also supply personal ID and proof of their address.
If you are in Nelson temporarily or on holiday you are welcome to join our libraries as a visitor member, under the same conditions as general library membership (see below). However the membership is limited to four weeks and there is a charge of $20 per member.
