Since Wellington’s Central Library was closed, PLNZ member Laurinda Thomas and the Team have been looking at ways to ensure Wellingtonians still have access to library services. Laurinda is the Libraries and Community Spaces Manager at Wellington City Council and with their colleagues at National Library has been looking at creative ways to deliver complementary services.
A new co-operative space is expected to be open in September, offering customers a small collection of books and magazines to browse and borrow, access to digital content, free WiFi, and public PCs. A librarian will be on hand to answer questions and join up new members.
In the meantime, those missing the Central Library can access library services at the Manners Street pop-up.
