Anyone can become a member of our district libraries. Joining entitles you to membership to all three libraries in the district - Mangakino, Taupo and Turangi.

To sign up, visit your library with photo I.D. and a statement or a bill that has been posted to your address within the last month. If you are under 16 you will need a parent or guardian to sign for you.
