Join the Friends and support the Hocken Collections, a world-class institution situated in Dunedin, a UNESCO Creative City of Literature.

As a Friend you have the opportunity to participate in regular talks on topics relating to the Collections, read the Friends’ Flotsam & Jetsam newsletter, receive invitations to Hocken Library exhibition openings and talks, and attend the annual Friends’ celebration event, commemorating the anniversary of the date (2 September) on which Dr Hocken signed the Deed of Trust presenting his collection to the people of New Zealand.
