Tower Room Library | Gift shop

The beautiful Dunedin Chinese Garden is a traditional Chinese scholars garden, offering the perfect environment for poets and writers to escape the outside world and focus on nature and literature.

The Garden has been most fortunate that Shanghai Library has gifted a very generous donation of nearly 300 books for our Tower Room library. There are books about all sorts of topics, such as Chinese gardens, architecture, economics, history, art and craft, Chinese language textbooks, novels and children's books. Come and spend some time in the tower room with a nice cup of Chinese tea and have a browse through the new arrivals.

The Garden gift shop has a range of good quality affordable gifts sourced from Shanghai. It includes traditional chopstick sets, embroideries and silk fans. Games and puzzles are available for purchase as well as accessories such as bags, wallets, key rings and umbrellas. These aren't seen for sale elsewhere – come away with a memorable keepsake or a unique gift. The gift shop is located in the sunny courtyard of the Garden.
