A small group visited Tarakea in August 2013 and were pleased to see the library is now being well utilised by the students and teachers of St Pius X primary school. The books have all been catalogued and an inventory has been compiled. Extra shelving has been added to house more than 4000 books. The students in the upper primary classes are able to borrow books for a period of 3 days. On each occasion they must fill out a library card and their borrowing is recorded in a book.

A reading room is now under construction, so as the library can be made available to the wider community of Tarakea.
