Te Aka Mauri 

The name Te Aka Mauri was gifted by Ngā Mahinga Toi, a group of iwi leaders brought together to guide the design process. Te Aka means the vine or interconnection and Mauri means life force or essence. The name reflects the shared vision to create a facility of excellence to advance community wellbeing and understanding. 

The new Te Aka Mauri building comprises four floors. It is located right in the heart of the CBD, next to Jean Batten Square, stretching the full length from Arawa Street to Haupapa Street.  

Rotorua Library is currently located at the corner of Pukuatua Street and Amohia Street. Once Rotorua Library moves into Te Aka Mauri in early February we will be open 7 days a week.
