Glen Eden Library gets its roof
Library gets its roof
The new Glen Eden Library is a step closer to completion.
Waitakere City Council staff, councillors and community board members joined with the team from Hawkins Construction Limited on Friday to celebrate the progress, marked by the completion of the construction of the roof.
Councillor Janet Clews welcomes guests and thanks those involved for their hard work.
The new library building is expected to open in October and like Massey Library, will integrate artwork, architecture and functionality.
A six-metre tall pouwhenua is planned for the southern aspect of the library, carved by Te Kawerau a Maki and currently being stored in Cornwallis.
With the Play House Theatre opposite and Glen Mall in front, the new library aims to connect these three hubs of Glen Eden.
The design also takes advantage of
views towards the Waitakere Ranges and Titirangi hills.
