17 November 2008

Manukau Libraries extends loan period for Christmas holidays

Manukau Libraries are extending their loan period this festive season giving residents one less thing to worry about over the Christmas holidays.

Service Development Manager for Manukau Libraries Kirsty McMillan says the initiative will help customers reduce stress and give them more time to enjoy their library books, magazines, DVDs and other items during what is undoubtedly the busiest time of the year.

“Library staff wish all their customers a very merry Christmas. We hope this extension will mean they have a more relaxing summer holiday.

“Books which are normally loaned for 28 days become 45 day loans on items issued between 25 November and 24 December. There will also be extended loan arrangements for other items. Ask library staff for more details.

“Remember to check your issue receipt for details in order to avoid any late fees and then sit back and enjoy your summer reads”, says Kirsty.

This is because it is going to be implemented earlier and faster, including retrospective rebates from April 2023. More

Green Party: Petition To Save Oil & Gas Ban

“The new Government’s plan to expand oil and gas exploration is as dangerous as it is unscientific. Whatever you think about the new government, there is simply no mandate to trash the climate. We need to come together to stop them,” says James Shaw. More

PSA: MFAT Must Reverse Decision To Remove Te Reo

MFAT's decision to remove te reo from correspondence before new Ministers are sworn in risks undermining the important progress the public sector has made in honouring te Tiriti. "We are very disappointed in what is a backward decision - it simply seems to be a Ministry bowing to the racist rhetoric we heard on the election campaign trail," says Marcia Puru. More
