We are preparing to replace the current library in the city centre with a new Central Library & Community Hub.
The vision for the new facility is that will be a vibrant and inspirational place where everyone can learn, relax, create, socialise, and enjoy themselves.
Its purpose will be to:
- Provide experiences and opportunities to expand minds, foster creativity, connect with others, access information, find solitude, and have fun.
- Share and preserve the stories of Tauranga Moana: past, present, and future.
- Support engagement with, and delivery of the library network both physically and digitally.
- Contribute to a vibrant city centre that people want to visit
We anticipate that it will:
- Provide a wide spectrum of programmes and events, co-created with our community
- Improve access to information, technology and resources
- Enable study, business and personal development
- Provide space for meetings, gatherings and community services
- Demonstrate a visible partnership with Mana Whenua
- Provide an expanded heritage and collection space to reflect our evolving history
- Become a place for current and future generations to love
