Library Services to Schools in the Albany, Manawatū, and Wellington Regions

Institutional school membership is available to early childhood centres, primary, and intermediate schools in the wider Albany, Manawatū and Wellington regions.

When a school becomes a member of Massey University Library each teacher at that school may obtain an individual borrowing card. The purpose of this membership is to support the professional development of the teachers in the region.

Normal and secondary schools have a separate membership type.


$200 annual cost per school.


The Principal (or nominee) must submit the Financial or School Member Registration Form.

Once the Library has approved the school's membership, teachers at that school can apply for individual borrowing cards in person during Monday to Friday opening hours. Please bring appropriate authorisation from the school and photo identification. We will also require name, school, home address, phone number and email address.

Library cards will be completed within 24 hours, and will be valid for 12 months from the payment of the school membership fee. Renewal will require payment from the school and confirmation from the school that the individual is a current member of staff. Please contact us for further information
