Turanga is the central library but its so much more than a library! Especially for little ones its a great place to visit. It has pools full of Lego, Duplo, wooden toys, different costumes to try on, an indoor slight with a hidden fairy park underneath and of course lots and lots of amazing books…
A library like no other. Spaces for everyone with architectural features, a lego area, internal slide, delicious cafe and views of the city from the 4th floor.
Central library recently opened. Architectural designed building, with lots of displays about New Zealand.
“Amazing playground for big kids and little kids plus check out New Regent Street and the ice cream shop called Rollicking Gelato!”
“True, it is upstairs and a bit of a climb, but the differing bar areas, and the live music make it all worthwhile :)”
“Not your usual food court . Yummy food and a great atmosphere. Can get quite busy though, so arrive early if you want to beat the crowds. ”
“ This place teams with life being sorrounded by a popular Tertiary Institution and they have made the best this high foot traffic. The rebuild Architecture is worth taking in too.”
