Friends of the Library

Rotorua Library is very fortunate to have had the unwavering support of an active Friends of the Library group, hard-working volunteers whose aims are:

  • To promote and support the library
  • To facilitate its use and enjoyment by the public
  • To help to acquire additional resources and services for the library
  • To lobby on behalf of the library
  • To encourage involvement of the community in the activities, needs and progress of the library
