Mangawhai Historic Book Train

The Book Train is a free resource for the community open 7 days, 10am - 4pm. It is run completely by volunteers and you don't even have to return your book! We do pay rent on the building so if you purchase a print 50% comes back to Mangawhai's Helping Hands for the rent cost.

You can buy these gorgeous photos taken by Josie Gritten Photography in size 8' x 10' for $30 each (plus courier costs) by emailing
