Changes to library hours at Te Atatu South Library

Changes to library hours at Te Atatu South Library

The Te Atatu South Library will be changing its hours as of 18 July.

The new library hours will be 9am-5.30pm Tuesdays and Fridays, with a half day 1-5.30pm on Wednesdays. The library will be closed Mondays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays and will not have any late nights.

Tuesday story times at the library will continue until the end of the school year.

There will be no change to the access service, which delivers library materials to those housebound, and children's and teen's librarians will still provide outreach services such as school visits in the area.

The changed hours will culminate in the closure of the library around February 2006, coinciding with the opening of the new Waitakere Central library in Henderson. The new library will offer enhanced services with a learning centre, permanent reference librarians and free access to the internet through a monitored computer suite. The mobile library will also make regular stops in the Te Atatu South area to accommodate those with transport difficulties.
