Home : Tūranga


Tūranga has been one of the true success stories of the Christchurch City rebuild following the 2011 earthquakes

Tūranga is a celebration of everything a modern library can offer. Our art installations transform it into a vibrant community space. 

Tūranga, the Christchurch Central Library, was designed as a unique bicultural space, where the history and narratives of mana whenua are woven into themes of ongoing development and the search for knowledge.

The name Tūranga was gifted by Te Ngāi Tūāhuriri Rūnanga, and the whare pukapuka invites visitors to experience a connected, community-focused ‘storehouse of knowledge’.
