Friends of the Tauranga Libraries and what’s going on in your library


Friends of the Tauranga libraries are a group of people of all ages and from all walks of life who share an interest in books, libraries, life and literacy.

We hold four meetings, most months of the year to explore these interests. We support the Summer Reading programmes both by securing grant money and also by helping with the setup and finales of the programmes. Money raised through our regular activities goes back into our libraries. A strong aspect of our work is advocating on behalf of the community with both the Library and the Tauranga City Council.

When you join the Friends of the Tauranga Libraries you are able to attend any of our meetings and will also receive our newsletters, Bookline, which comes out every second month. You will have opportunities to volunteer for the reading programmes and assisting with advocacy work.
