Pecha Kucha Is Returning


Coming back to Kawerau - 7 pm Thursday 15th February 2018 - Tickets $10 available now at the Library. Pecha Kucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings where creative people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts, holiday snaps -- just about anything, really -- in the Pecha Kucha 20x20 format. Some Pecha Kuchas tell great stories about a project or a trip. Some are incredibly personal, some are incredibly funny, but all are very different, and they turn each PechaKucha Night into “a box of chocolates.” 

Summer Short Story Competition

Kawerau District Library is proud to sponsor a summer short story competition for 18+ adults in association with its writers group, Write on Kawerau. Prizes will be awarded for the judge’s selection of the top three. The prize winning stories will be published on the library’s website and the theme is it happened one summer. A full list of rules and conditions of entry can be viewed on the Library website and the competition closes at 5pm on 31st January 2018.


Tween Book Club

If your tween is interested in books, or if you would like them to discover the wonderful world of literature, Tween Book Club could be just the thing! Tween Book Club meets on the first Monday of each month, 5.30pm - 6.30pm and is ideal for ages 9-12yrs.  It is not only a great way in which to discuss books but also to make friends and socialise outside of school. Our next meeting is Monday 5 March 2018.


On the first Monday of every month, ages 5 & up are welcome to join us for an afternoon of LEGO building fun. Each month will focus on a different LEGO theme and sessions run from 3-4.30pm. The next session is Monday 5 March 2018.
