Piha Library Working Bee

It's that time of year again! The windows need cleaning, the deck needs scrubbing, lightbulbs need replacing! So on Sunday June 29th at 10am we'll be holding our annual working bee. It would be wonderful to have you there. If you can help in anyway please email us at pihacommunitylibrary@gmail.com to let us know.

Piha Kids art for Mother's Day

A big thank you to the kids of Piha Preschool for their fantastic portraits of their mums- visit the Piha Library to see these beautiful pictures by our budding young artists.

Car Boot Fair - thanks from the Library Trust

The Car Boot Fair went ahead on Easter Saturday even though the weather wasn't the best. There was a good turnout of hardy car boot sellers and treasure hunters who came along and braved the squalls. Despite the weather the event raised approximately $1400 towards the replacement roof and library running costs. A big thank you to everyone who helped our fundraising endeavour, and especially to Marilyn who ran the event for the Trust.

Piha Library Thursday after-school Session

Did you know that on Thursdays the library is open from 3.30-5.30 pm? We know how busy weekends can be, so this session was set up to make the library more accessible to children living in the Piha, Karekare and Anawhata area. It's also a good opportunity for those working out of Piha to pop in and get a book or a DVD for the weekend.

Piha Oral History Collection "Storybooth"

We want to expand our collection of local history on Piha and you can help. We have set up a 'Story Booth' at the library to collect your stories and anecdotes about Piha. We have postcards available for you to fill out with any story you would like to share relating to this area. You can fill these out at the library, or feel free to take a postcard home with you to ponder over your story. The postcards will be displayed in the library and later put together as a record of a piece of Piha history. Postcards will be available at the library during May and June. Please come and share your story with us.
