Papamoa's new $9 million environmentally friendly library opened on 16 June 2006. Total membership of city libraries exploded with 8000 people joining since the Papamoa Library opened and about 400 new borrowers being signed up every month. The total number of people through the door exceeded 100,000 by the first week of November 2006, with 150,000 issues and staff handling 3000 inquiries. The emerging pattern was 18,000 visits and 30,000 issues per month. Papamoa library was stocked with 40,000 books - 90 per cent of them new. The library was built big enough to cope with Papamoa's planned growth for the following 14 years.
