Remuera community library closes for revamp

Remuera community library closes for revamp

One of Remuera’s oldest residents is getting a facelift – in public.


The historic Remuera Community Library will close between June 17 and July 29 for a makeover that both staff and customers are looking forward to.

The neo-Georgian library was built in 1926 and is a protected heritage building, listed by the New Zealand Historic Places Trust and scheduled under the district plan.

The refurbishment will include a new service desk, new carpet and shelving, upgraded toilet facilities and a new layout. The customer entrance from St Vincent’s Avenue will be reopened and a new ramp at this entrance will improve access for customers using mobility scooters, wheelchairs or pushchairs.

The result will be a library with all the beauty and character of a historic building and all the essential elements of a modern library, including ease of access, internet and online resources, a space for children, a quiet corner to read and collections to browse.

During the closure, books cannot be borrowed or returned. The nearest alternative community libraries are at Parnell, St Heliers, Epsom and Glen Innes.

Customers wanting more information can call 377 0209 or visit www.aucklandcitylibraries.com.
