Visit Tuakau library

Little Libraries are part of our Placemaking programme that is designed to make the district’s public spaces inviting and boost residents’ enjoyment of their towns and villages.

Holding 20-30 books that can be borrowed and exchanged, each little library will be decorated and installed by local residents to enhance a local gathering place.

Does your area need a Little Library or do you have a Placemaking idea?

Donate to your Little Library

If you would like to donate books to a Little Library, you can drop one off when you take a book out or if you have more than two, drop the books off at your closest Waikato District Library or Council Office. Please do not drop books at a Little Library if they do not fit in it.
