Te Aka Mauri, incorporating the new Rotorua Library and Rotorua Children's Health Hub, is now open and we welcome everyone to come in and enjoy the very unique environment. Te Aka Mauri offers untold opportunities for learning, inspiration, education and health, for everyone in our community and visitors to the district, now and in the future.
The name Te Aka Mauri was gifted by Ngā Mahinga Toi, a group of iwi leaders brought together to guide the design process. Te Aka means the vine or interconnection and Mauri means life force or essence. The name reflects the shared vision to create a facility of excellence to advance community wellbeing and understanding.
The new Te Aka Mauri building comprises four floors. It is located right in the heart of the CBD, next to Jean Batten Square, stretching the full length from Arawa Street to Haupapa Street.
A mihi has been written for Te Aka Mauri by Ngā Mahinga Toi Chair, Bryce Murray.
