The Coalition was formed in 2013 to coordinate efforts against the steady deterioration of library services in Wellington. They advocate for users and staff of public libraries in Wellington and brings together groups like Owners of Wellington Libraries (OWL), Save Khandallah Library, supporters of the Brooklyn Library, library campaigners from Wellington City and the wider region, and the Public Service Association which represents library staff interests.
