Twizel Area School benefits from shared use of the Twizel Community Library on our school site. 

It is a well stocked, vibrant, spacious Library with exceptionally experienced and knowledgeable Librarians, who are able and willing to help with any questions or requests you may have. The Library is split into age-appropriate sections and carries most of the books students will require for their studies, and when reading for pleasure. National Library orders can be placed if you require a special book and suggestions for purchases are gladly received. 

Students can visit the school library on a timetable basis and at lunchtime.

Students in Years 1-6 are expected to keep library books in a book bag (provided with school stationery or available for purchase from the school office) and must return the books in excellent condition by the due date. If books are lost or damaged, we will send out an account to recover the cost of replacement.

Online Library Database

Online Library

The Twizel Community Library database is now available to browse online. Students in Years 7-13 can log in using their Google school account to see the books they borrowed in the past, what they currently have on loan, and even reserve books they would like to borrow. 

You can also search for resources from search providers such as Te Papa, the Smithsonian, the National Library of New Zealand, and many more.

We have two computers set up in the library to search the database, but you can also do it from home!

Go to, then choose the Twizel Area School Login option. Community members can also use the search facility by choosing the Guest option; they will be able to login in the future. We will also be introducing a mobile app for Community members to use very soon.
