Māori Collections

Each of our three libraries has an Adult Māori Section and also a Junior Māori Section.  In Hastings War Memorial Library the Adult Māori Section has both reference and lending collections and is located on the ground level overlooking Civic Square and Ngā Pou o Heretaunga. 

These collections contain items of cultural, historical, social and language significance for all of Aotearoa.   Emphasis is given to any material of a local nature, particularly Ngāti Kahungunu.
