Access your account and the Hurunui Library Catalogue by clicking on the above button.
Our new library app is here...
This app lets you access the library anytime, anywhere. Search the library's catalogue and manage your account from your mobile device, both physical and digital resources alike.
Search the catalogue
Search the library catalogue by title, author, or subject and place holds on items - from the comfort of home. You can check that books are available before heading down, or be informed when it's ready and waiting for pick up.
Manage your account
Keep track of your library account and manage your checkouts, holds, fees and account information. You can check due dates, renew items and even manage your family's accounts, all from your own device.
Two helpful features which make your reading world that much easier are:
- The ability to scan book/CD/DVD barcodes with your device's camera to search your library for those items. Great if you want to pick up your own copy of a friend's current read.
- And a GPS feature that helps you locate your nearest library!
The previously used Bookmyne app has been discontinued and the new Hurunui Libraries App replaces this and its features.
We are very pleased to announce that this very popular event is back! We have lots of titles for sale this time due to lockdown and the postponement of our last sale. Come fill your bag for $5, can't wait to see you there!
