The Mobile Learning Centre, a Mercedes Sprinter van, is fitted with digital equipment and is used as part of the library's mobile services. The Mobile Learning Centre is equipped with numerous forms of technology including laptops, tablets and a WiFi hotspot. It will deliver existing services and programmes such as eLibrary education sessions and Stepping Up classes in the community and enables Rotorua Library to deliver digital services in the community.
The Friends of the Library have also given their support to Te Aka Mauri, Rotorua's new library and Children's health hub. Their funding has allowed the purchase of customised magazine shelving on the ground floor, reader-friendly furniture in the second floor reading room and bespoke shelving in the Don Stafford Room.
