Step back 60 years and discover the stories of a new and remote suburb, and of the river that wraps around it.

Follow the timeline of the rapid growth experienced as farmland was transformed into homes for many. Half a century later it is a richly diverse community with many new layers of story embedded.

Tūrangawaewae is the name for the Kākahu/Contemporary Cloak that will be woven in the library during this time (November 5-30).

This Kākahu symbolises our library as a place of belonging for our hapori/community, a place to feel empowered and connected.

You are invited to come and share your voice, your stories, your memories while we create and complete Kākahu Tūrangawaewae together under the guidance of local weaver Paia Swanson’ Terepo.

The weaving of the Kākahu will take place on Saturdays (5, 12, 19, 26) 10am-2pm, and Sundays (6, 13, 20, 27) 10am to 2pm.
