Auckland Libraries: your place of imagination, learning and connection.
Te Kauroa – Future Directions is the first strategic plan for Auckland Libraries, following the creation of the amalgamated Auckland Council in November 2010.
Auckland Council has set an ambitious long-term vision for Auckland to be the world’s most liveable city. The Auckland Plan details the strategies and directions which will deliver this vision across all aspects of life in the region.
Te Kauroa – Future Directions details how libraries will contribute to the vision and
outcomes of the Auckland Plan. It provides a framework for the planning and development of library services, and outlines the priorities and shifts required to deliver world-class services which meet the needs of all Auckland’s diverse communities.
Our challenge is to reshape library services in response to the digital revolution which is changing all aspects of our lives, while accommodating the rapid growth in population size and diversity which the region is experiencing.
The name Te Kauroa symbolises a tool which enables people to set direction and move forward together. This strategic plan is the tool we will use to build the future library together. This is a truly exciting opportunity, to build on the innovation and vibrancy which is our proud tradition while harnessing our new scale as the largest public library system in Australasia.
