Auaha logo has colourful bubbles around the letter A. Underneath it says 'A space to create'.We have two Auaha Makerspace locations available at Hamilton City Libraries, one at our Central Library and one at our Te Kete Aronui Library. 

Auaha is a space for the community to come and experience creative technologies in a safe and engaging place. You can come into our Auaha spaces to use our innovative technologies by either attending one of our scheduled classes or dabbling in some self-directed learning.


If our equipment can make it happen, then so can you! To find out what's available, check out the Auaha equipment list

As it is a self-directed learning space, we encourage users to teach themselves how to use the equipment and software using the tutorials and resources provided. If you need help getting started, you can ask one of our friendly Auaha Librarians.
