A new air conditioning system is being installed in our Waihi Library and Service Centre.

Closure required to access all spaces in the Library, including public toilets

This is major work requiring new ducting pipes and units in the ceiling. The project is due for completion by the end of March. While we’ll keep the disruption to a minimum for our visitors most of the time, we’ll need to close the Waihi Library for two full days to allow the contractors access to the Library, ceilings and the public toilets. Our Customer Service Centre will be open and operating as usual.

Alternative public toilets

Public toilets can be found on Haszard Street, next to the Tandori Chambers restaurant.

Our library staff will still be working and can be contacted by phone on 0800 734 834; online through the Library Chat portal or by emailing You'll also be able to access all our online library services and resources. Returned books can be dropped off as usual in the outside bin at the back entrance to the Waihi Library and we’ll waive any overdue charges for books due on the 1st or 2nd February. If you're heading into Paeroa or Ngatea, you're welcome to pop in to those libraries to return or check out books or resources, as your library membership allows you to use any of our three libraries.
