The new library at Rototuna, Te Kete Aronui Rototuna Library, will open on Friday 21 July. Click HERE for the details.
Te Kete Aronui – The Te Haa o te Whenua o Kirikiriroa (THaWK) group collectively came up with the following name and narrative for the building.
“A new name that is significant and relevant to this building
in Rototuna. We are referring to Te kete aronui, a basket
of knowledge of aroha, peace and the arts and crafts which
benefit the Earth and all living things – one of the three
baskets of knowledge. This basket relates to knowledge
acquired through careful observation of the environment.
It is also the basket of ritual, of literature, philosophy and
is sometimes regarded as the basket of the humanities.
This is how we would describe and refer to this place.”
