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.
