Logo for the Out of the Box event - Heritage Collections.

The Whakaputu/Archives and Special Collections of Hamilton City Libraries is coming to a library branch near you!

We have several programmes happening at your local library including heritage displays and visits from the Whakaputu/Archives Team. They’ll answer any questions, help you search the collection, teach you about oral histories, how to digitise your old photographs, or show you how to care for your own treasures.

Taking good care of your treasured items can give them a longer life. Do you have jewellery, timepieces or may be some family recipes that you want to keep safe for future generations? Come and meet us at your local branch. See our upcoming events for the dates. 


In addition to the visits, we will also be displaying items from our collections between these dates at the branches:

Chartwell Library Wednesday 6 April – Friday 21 May. 

Glenview Library Monday 31 May – Friday 16 July.

Hillcrest Library Monday 26 July – Friday 10 September.

St Andrews Library Monday 20 September – Friday 5 November.

Dinsdale Library Monday 15 November – Friday 31 December.
