Construction started on new New Lynn library

Construction started on new library

New Lynn will have its new library in October 2005, with construction having begun in December 2004.

The total cost of the project is $4.5M. The library will incorporate a Citizen's Advice Bureau, Waitakere City Council Service Centre and Memorial Public Square, with its historic war memorial.

At 1,000 square metres, the new library will more than double the size of the existing library and will front onto Memorial Square with a large verandah and entry. In keeping with other Waitakere buildings, the library will feature numerous artworks and themes.

Designed for both adults and children, there will be informal study areas and views to the landscaped areas outside in the adults section, whilst the children's area will encourage the learning and reading experience.
