We offer a XBox in Rangiora, Kaiapoi and Oxford, free for anyone to play!

No bookings are required, just come in and ask a friendly librarian for a controller, play with up to two players, and return the controller(s) when you have finished.

The consoles currently have a mix of titles, including Minecraft, Forza 4 (car racing), Lego Star Wars, and more! Please talk to one of the librarians if you have a game suggestion.

All content available on our consoles are G or PG rated and have parental controls to safely cater to our diverse communities.
