We are back and we’re celebrating!

Flaxmere Library’s newly renovated premises will be officially opened on the evening of Friday 28 March.

District libraries manager Paula Murdoch says after having no book collection in Flaxmere for 6 months it will be great to be back offering full services from the Library’s premises.
“We have been fielding questions from library users for some time about when ‘their’ library will be back in action. They will love the results.” says Paula.

We will be open for business on Friday 28 March during the reopening celebrations and invite members of the community to come in and explore the renovated space.

To celebrate the reopening, those who join or use the Flaxmere library in April are eligible to enter a competition to win an iPad mini. (Terms and conditions apply).

Paula says the iPad prize is symbolic of the library’s role in providing downloadable content and its role in supporting community digital literacy.

“Hastings District Libraries run a series of digital literacy programmes for the community throughout the year and eBooks are available, 24/7 through the Libraries’ website. The iPad prize has wifi and cellular capability which means the lucky winner will be able to access our electronic resources at anytime.”

Regular preschool storytime sessions, reading programmes and school holiday activities will all resume after reopening.

The library is located in the Flaxmere Community Centre and normal library hours will resume from 10am, Saturday 29 March.
