Pitopito Kōrero

At Nelson Public Libraries we have been adjusting our programmes and services in line with the COVID-19 Protection Framework and are aware that these could change over the next few months.

Nightingale Library Memorial will temporarily close until Wednesday 2 March due to staff shortages caused by the COVID-19 situation. The Stoke and Elma Turner Library will remain open under the following hours:

Elma Turner Library                                      

  • Friday, Monday, Tuesday: 9.30am – 5pm      
  • Saturday: 10am – 4pm 
  • Sunday: 1-4pm
Stoke Library                                                                                                              
  • Friday, Monday, Tuesday: 9.30am – 5.30pm 
  • Saturday: 10am - 1pm                                                            
  • Sunday: Closed
Items can still be returned to all three branches using the 24/7 book drops, and there will not be changes to the Click and Collect service at the Elma Turner and Stoke Libraries.
Please note that while we plan to re-open all three branches next Wednesday, this may change due to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 situation. Given this unpredictability, we recommend checking our websiteFacebook page, or Nelson City Council for the most up to date information.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused and appreciate your understanding. We can be reached at library@ncc.govt.nz or on (03) 546 8100 if you have any further questions.

Quiet Hour at Elma Turner Library

A modern library can have a lot going on with programmes, computers, noise, and bright lights. We are working towards making our library more welcoming for people with hypersensitive conditions such as anxiety, Autism, intellectual disabilities, dementia, or other neurodiverse conditions by making it a less stimulating environment. 

Every Tuesday morning, Elma Turner Library will hold a Quiet Hour with computers off, sounds minimised, and artificial lights dimmed.

Now, people with different needs have a time designed for them to visit the library to discover, learn, and create from everything the library has to offer.


Waiting for Dominion 

If you're a dino geek like us and you're counting the days until the June release of Jurassic World: Dominion, here's some things to read (or knit) while you wait. Fossils, fossil hunters, genetics, climate change, and high stakes adventure - something for every amateur paleontologist and Sam Neill fanboy or girl. 

Click & Collect

To make sure all our customers have access to our wonderful collection we have introduced a Click and Collect service. This is available for all members of our community.

Please visit our website for more information about how this service works, FAQs, and to fill out a form to request some books. 

Alternatively you can phone us on 03 546 8100 and we can complete a form on your behalf, or answer any questions you have about the service.
