Welcome to our Library

libraryThe Kohukohu Community Library is an independent library run by volunteers.

We are fortunate in that our 1916 historic building is managed by the Far North District Council so that most of our funds, which come from members’ annual subscriptions and other fundraising activities, can be dedicated to buying books.

Library services are:

  • contemporary adult fiction, including the latest thrillers
  • general non-fiction, including a good selection of art books and memoirs and an interesting collection of Northland history books
  • young adult and children’s fiction
  • lifestyle magazines eg Life and Leisure, North and South, NZ Gardener etc.
  • a small DVD collection

We have interloan agreements with Kaitaia Library and Northern Libraries Network that provide a regular changing selection of Large Print and Audio Books

The library offers free WIFI courtesy of Uber Community Sponsorship and we have 2 computers and a printer for public use.

The Archive Room contains a collection of historic photos of Kohukohu and its people plus some timber mill and local cemetery records. A selection of historic Hokianga films are available for viewing.

We run a monthly Book Discussion group and a Writing group.

Library opening hours are: Thursday/Friday/Saturday/Sunday 10am to 12noon.  We hold an open monthly meeting to discuss the library and our catalogue - all are welcome!

Annual membership fees are: Family $20 Individual $15 Seniors $10
