Parklands Library reopened Friday 29 March 9am

Repairs are completed, so Parklands is back in business.

Parklands Library closed in November 2018 to undergo routine earthquake repairs. These repairs are now complete, and the library reopened on Friday 29 March 2019, ahead of schedule.

Parkland Library, which shut in November, was initially scheduled to reopen in April. However, the overall work has not been as extensive as expected, resulting in the earlier reopening date.

The library cafe is expected to reopen in a few months, with the cafe operation still open for tender.

Christchurch City Council Head of Libraries and Information Carolyn Robertson says the revamped Parklands Library is a wonderful “fit” for the local community, offering a more open space. “Local connections are more important than ever and our updated library is an integral element of the Parklands community,” Ms Robertson says. “The improvements and repairs will ensure that the library remains a relevant community hub in the Parklands area for many years to come.”

Parklands Library has been strengthened and refurbished, with spaces reworked to better meet community needs. The heating and ventilation system has been replaced, while energy-efficient LED fittings have been installed. Floor coverings have been replaced, computer work stations moved, and all areas have undergone a makeover.
