Hutt Valley Branch NZSG Library

Our resources include books, magazines, CD ROMs and microfiche.  We have resources to assist with Hutt Valley history and genealogical research, and material to help with family history research more generally. Due to issues with dampness in Petone Library Heritage area we have removed all our branch books and resources to safe storage.

A current Branch Membership card is required to borrow any of the Branch's library collection and in order to use our computer or microfiche resources.
