Friends of the Library

​​​​The Friends of the Library are a group of people who love libraries!

They support libraries, run educational and entertaining events, fund-raise and advocate for them.

Taupo and Turangi are lucky enough to have Friends of the Library groups to support services and organise events in the library.
