Group Visits

Want to learn more about your library? A group visit may be just the ticket to find out how you can make the most of your library.

A visit includes a tour of the library collections and can be customised to suit your group's specific interest.

Find out how many books there are in the library, how many people visit the library every day and what librarians do (if they don't get to read books all day).

To book a visit or learn more about what your group could do in the library please contact us via email: library@rotorualc.nz or phone: (07) 348 4177.
