Ngaruawahia's public library will reopen on Saturday after it was closed for safety reasons in April.
The reopening at 9am will be followed by a public open day.
Festivities will run until 12.30pm and include free face painting and chalk drawing.
The library was shut after a structural engineer's report revealed it could collapse in a moderate earthquake.
Waikato District Council has opted to carry out bracing work on the Jesmond St building with three external walls reinforced.
Internal walls have also been painted.
The council has yet to decide on the library's long-term future and will consult with the community on possible options.
Council stakeholder relations general manager Jo Ireland said the library reopening was an exciting occasion for Ngaruawahia residents and council staff.
''The library plays such a pivotal role in the community so it's going to be great to have the full service back up and running.''
A temporary library facility has been operating out of the council's head office in Ngaruawahia.
