Public Seminar on New Library / Learning Centre

Friday 11 July 2003

Free Public Seminar on New South Christchurch Library/Service
Centre/Learning Centre

A public seminar showcasing the special features of the new South Christchurch Library/Service Centre/Learning Centre will be held on Wednesday 23 July at the Cashmere Club, starting at 7pm.

‘We’d love our neighbours and members of the community to come along, meet those involved in the construction of the building and find out about its exciting features,’ says Christchurch City Libraries Manager Sue Sutherland.

Speakers will include representatives from the Library, Beckenham Service Centre, the Learning Centre, Warren and Mahoney, Spreydon/Heathcote Community Board and owners of the café Cup, who will be running the South Library café.

Finishing touches are being put to the Library/Service Centre/Learning Centre on the corner of Colombo St and Hunter Terrace, which will be officially opened on Saturday 23 August.

Sustainability is one of the building’s key themes – a feature requested by the community during the Council’s consultation phase on the facility.

Designed by Warren and Mahoney architects, it will be one of Christchurch’s most environmentally friendly buildings. Its design minimises waste and energy use as well as use of sustainable and non-toxic materials.

The complex is being built by Mainzeal Property and Construction on Christchurch City Council land formerly occupied by the Beckenham Service Centre.
