Raglan Library to reopen late July

Raglan Library to reopen late July


With renovations on Raglan Library nearing an end, Waikato District Council is pleased to announce the building will reopen for business at 9am on Monday 28 July.

To allow staff to begin the move, the temporary site at 39 Bow Street will be closed for one day on Friday 11 July, so customers are asked to take care of any urgent Council business before this date.

From 14 July, Council services such as rates and dog registrations will continue to be offered from 39 Bow Street until 5pm 25 July, but library services will cease until the reopening of the library building to allow for books to be re-sited.

There will be a small selection of books available for reading at the temporary site, but books will not be issued during this period so customers are asked to return, renew or acquire any books beforehand, or are welcome to visit one of Council’s other libraries.

Waikato District Council General Manager Customer Support, Sue Duignan, thanked the Raglan community for their patience throughout the project.

“It’s great to be at this stage in the project where we can almost unveil the new space to its users. It’s looking good and we are excited to have an enthusiastic group of Raglan placemakers working energetically to make the interior library space an interesting and creative one.”

Work began on the building in March 2014 to address a leaking roof and create more floor space.
