UPPER HUTT RECOLLECT is the interactive database for the Upper Hutt City Library Heritage Collections. It provides easy online access to a rich store of heritage material relating to Upper Hutt City, its people, and events.

By registering as a member (all that's required is an email address) you're also able to contribute your own knowledge and memories about our holdings, as well as create personal collections of your own.

As of January 2014 we've moved over to the latest Version 1.5 of the RECOLLECT platform. This has not only provided us with a stylish new look, it's also made our tools easier to find and use, as well as created lots of added functionality.

Keep an eye on our new Twitter feed for suggestions about collection items you might want to have a look at.
