Joann Ransom - Te Takeretanga o Kura-hau-Pō: Horowhenua's New Culture and Community Centre - Oh and Library Too

Our Council has a vision: “To make Horowhenua the best rural lifestyle district in New Zealand” and they recognize that 21st century Libraries have a huge role to play in getting there. In September 2012 stage 1 of Horowhenua's brand new community centre, Te Takere, will open. This $7m project is the work of Horowhenua District Council and Horowhenua Library Trust in partnership with the Muaupoko Tribal Authority. It is the result of a community working together to achieve great things – not least of which was a huge amount of fundraising.
