Pakiaka - Rotorua Heritage Online

Introducing our new online heritage website, Pakiaka where you can easily access items from the library's heritage collections. This includes images, publications, maps and audio-visual content that tell the rich history of Rotorua.
You can also upload your own material relating to Rotorua people, places and events via Pakiaka. Visit this page to learn more.


Rotorua Library on Pinterest

Hundreds of photographs, newspaper clippings and book covers are on display on the Rotorua Library Heritage & Research Pinterest page. There are also interesting book reviews of titles held in Heritage & Research and photographs of the monthly Heritage displays.


Rotorua Library Heritage Blog

We are currently not updating the Rotorua Heritage Blog and instead will add this content to our new site, Pakiaka. With over 200 posts having been written over the last ten years, we look forward to re-sharing these local stories about people, events and community organisations on the new site.


Kete Rotorua - a basket of Rotorua memories

Kete Rotorua is no longer active and has been replaced by a new website, Pakiaka, where you can upload photographs, documents, audio or video of Rotorua people, places and events. An archived version of the kete site can be accessed via the National Library of New Zealand website.
