Kids book clubs

Events and programmes cancelled until further notice.

To help reduce the risk of exposure to illness, we have cancelled all children’s and adult programmes and events at the libraries from Monday, 23 March 2020.

Remember, the libraries are all still open – please come in and use our facilities. We recommend you practice social distancing from others – as a general rule, keep at least one metre between you and other people. 

Want to meet others to discuss books and make new friends? Come and join in with our after-school book clubs at Tauranga, Pāpāmoa and Greerton libraries.
