Library Services to Teachers at Regional Secondary & Palmerston North Normal Schools

Teacher membership is available to individual teachers of secondary schools in the following areas:

  • North Shore (Auckland)
  • Manawatū
  • Wellington, Hutt Valley and Porirua Cities

This membership recognises the special information needs of staff teaching Year 13 students, and aims to support the libraries at these schools where tertiary level resources may not be available. Membership is valid until the end of the year for which it is applied.

Teacher membership is also available to individual teachers at the three normal schools in Palmerston North:

  • Central Normal School
  • College Street Normal School
  • Palmerston North Intermediate Normal School

This membership recognises the special relationship these schools have with the Massey University Institute of Education, and aims to support the professional development of the teachers at these schools.
