Havelock North Library - History Highlights

Havelock North Library has been around for a long time!

Inauguration of the library by shareholders of the Mechanics Institute. Housed in the Foresters Lodge.  A correspondent in the [HB] Herald of the time commented "it was hoped the efforts of the committee would be requited by a lower attendance at the hotels and a consequent improved attendance at the institute, which was well lighted and where there was always a good fire burning".
