About Wheelers Books

Wheelers has been supplying schools and public libraries for more than 40 years.

Our website is the most comprehensive library website in New Zealand, with features that help make your selection/buying easier. All available titles are profiled with stock status and availability updated daily. 

We have also developed the very best proprietary systems and processes to cater to the needs of schools and libraries. These efficiencies provide cost and time benefits, helping schools and libraries to offer even better service.


We have in-house expertise to offer libraries a customised service, including everything from book selection to cataloguing and book processing.
Our special book covering rate for schools is only $1.25 +gst per book (which is less than cost).
Our expert processing team covers books for New Zealand’s largest public libraries so you can have peace of mind in the quality of their work. We use only the best materials to ensure quality protection and are happy to supply samples on request.
