Tauranga City Library

"more colourful and visually exciting"

"This is our central hub for all libraries in Tauranga City, so all of our research, resource books and our archive is here." Tauranga City libraries manager Joanna Thomas said. Joanna and her Team moved over 120,000 books, computers and other resources to the new site. 

He Puna Manawa was officially opened this month with a dawn ceremony led by tangata whenua and commissioner Anne Tolley.

This is the home for Tauranga's library for the next three years while the new civic precinct is constructed on the old Willow St site.

The library will continue to offer a wide range of services both online and in-person.

"A library is as much online as it is in the building," Thomas said. "One of the things we offer is a lot of help with technology, so people can go home and use their devices, get on to the library ebooks, streaming and learning platforms.
