We Need Your Help with Our Fundraisers

Christmas Hamper Fundraiser

As Christmas approaches we are asking for donations of non-perishable grocery items for our Christmas hamper raffle. We have a lovely basket to fill with goodies, so if you have any items to donate please drop them off at the Library by December 8th.  Raffle tickets for the hamper and for a beautiful Gingerbread house will be on sale from December 9th.  Please help us make this a successful fundraiser.

Piha Library Book Fair Planning Meeting

We are also beginning our planning for our annual Anniversary Weekend Book Fair.  This is a wonderful community event, and the biggest contributor to raising much needed funds for the library.  Our first planning meeting will be on Wednesday 20th November at 7pm at the Piha Community Library.  Please come along if you would like to get involved, or contact us if you would like to help but can't make it to the meeting.

Other ways you can help:

- Odd Jobs - do you have a tall ladder?  We are looking for someone to change some very high lightbulbs!
- Christmas and Summer Holiday Activities at the Library - We are currently looking for someone to run a Christmas activity and another Summer holiday activity in January for our junior members.  

Let us know if you are interested in helping out.

Check out our Kids Reviews

Did you know that we have a page with book reviews by kids?  Our junior members can submit their own reviews and we will post them to the library website.  We'd love to receive your child's review of great books they have read from the Piha library, so visit our reviews page to find out more.

New DVDs

We've just added some fantastic new release DVDs to our collection, including Danny Boyle's "Trance" and the stunning "The Reluctant Fundamentalist". Visit our DVDs page to catch up with all the DVDs that have been added this month.  When you like us on Facebook, we will keep you up to date with when new Books and DVDs are added to the collection.  You can also post your own comments about Books and DVDs you've enjoyed.

Congratulations to the winner of our Rialto Cinemas Double pass giveaway

Congratulations to Mike Smith, winner of our October Film Festival promotion giveaway!  A double pass to Rialto Cinemas is on the way to you.

A big thank you to Rialto Cinemas for their generous donation. And thank you to everyone else who borrows DVDs from us, it is one of our biggest fundraisers
