Hillcrest Library 2Hillcrest Library Manga-o-nua services the southeastern suburbs of Hamilton, and is situated in a group of shops in Masters Avenue.

Manga-o-nua is the name of the main gully stream that runs under State Highway 1 and Morrinsville Road. It was a tribal land mark in pre-European times marking the traditional boundaries between Ngati Wairere and Ngati Haua. The Manga-o-nua gully was used for gathering native trout and tuna (eels) that migrated upstream from the Waikato River. Tuna were dried and hung from Tuna Pataka - elevated storage huts.
