A simple container has been upgraded to be our very own open library on the waterfront. In a picturesque setting on the Viaduct side of the Te Wero Bridge you can lay back on the bean bags and read to your heart's content.

Open to the public during daylight hours on sunny days it’s a public spot where you are both librarian and borrower, custodian and patron.

The container library was put together by Panuku Development Auckland with sixty-five dollars cash and the generous offerings of books from Auckland Council  Libraries, plants from Auckland Council City Parks and some great furniture from lovely free-cycle donors.
