Central City Library, 44-46 Lorne St, Auckland CBD


All Ages

Bargain book sale, Sunday November 24 to Saturday November 30 while stocks last. On Friday November 29 and Saturday November 30 fill a bag for $2.

Auckland Libraries purchases more than half a million items in a variety of formats each year, providing a range of quality books for library users of all ages. Our 55 branches have around 3.5 million items and issue more than 17 million items each year.

Librarians assess our collections regularly and deselect material that is worn, damaged, or out of date. Librarians will also remove Items from the collection if they become less popular with our customers. While the library retains a few copies of dated material in collections like the stacks of the Central City Library, other copies are withdrawn and offered for sale to the public.

Twice a year the Central City Library holds a bargain book sale to offer the public the opportunity to purchase withdrawn materials. Withdrawn materials are in good condition but are no longer needed and include adult fiction and non-fiction, magazines, community languages, children’s books, teens books, and a small amount of sheet music and CDs.

While Auckland Libraries holds regular book sales, we also provide withdrawn materials to retirement homes, preschools, prisons, Pacific Island schools, and other libraries. We also provide support for charities, including the Variety Club of New Zealand and Lions Clubs New Zealand, through the donation of withdrawn material.

Children's books 50c
