Hahei Community Library

Welcome to the Hahei Community Library Web Page

Hahei is very proud of our library and we welcome residents, ratepayers, and visitors from the wider South Mercury Bay area. For new members who wish to join the library a $20 annual fee gives access to a wide range of books from Adult Fiction and Nonfiction to an extensive range of children’s books.

The Hahei Library generates income through subscriptions, annual Book Sale, and through its annual Market Day, which generates surplus funds that enables the library to support the wider community through Community Wellbeing donations each year.

The Library is located next to the Hahei Community Hall. It operates six days a week – Monday to Saturday, from 10 am to 12 pm. It is staffed entirely by local volunteers.

If you wish to join, come into the library with your details, and we will sign you up. Note your subscription covers not just you, but your whole household.
