Building Ōrauwhata: Bishopdale Library and Community Centre

Ōrauwhata: Bishopdale Library and Community Centre opened on Saturday 22 July 2017 on the site of the former Bishopdale Creche in Bishopdale Mall and replaced the former Bishopdale Library building next door.

The facility includes a combined library and community hall joined by an atrium in the 800 square metre single-storey building. The main hall divides into two separate spaces which can be combined to give greater flexibility. Both areas open to a deck and have access to a kitchen. A meeting space can be booked by community groups and can be used after hours when the library is closed. The adjacent library includes a 330 square metre collection space and can also open out to a deck.
