Easter is a movable Christian holiday that falls around the vernal equinox in March. Its date is calculated according to church-constructed tables and it occurs on different days every year. To find out more about how the date is calculated and Easter traditions see our Easter page.
In New Zealand both the Friday (Good Friday) and the Monday of Easter are statutory public holidays.
This year our libraries will be closed on the statutory holidays of Good Friday and Easter Monday but will be open normal hours on Saturday and Easter Sunday.
