Spreydon Library will be closed from Monday 20 April to Sunday 3 May for earthquake repairs.
The library will reopen on Monday 4 May. Work includes repairing cracks, repainting the interior, replacing windows and fixing the pavement.
"We're completing the work as quickly as possible, and we're expecting the process to go smoothly," says Libraries and Information Unit Manager Carolyn Robertson.
"Spreydon is the first of many libraries getting the repair treatment over the next 12 months, and Christchurch City Libraries is doing everything possible to minimise disruption and keep customers informed. We’d like to apologise to all our Spreydon customers for the inconvenience."
Items from Spreydon Library can be returned to any library in the Christchurch City Libraries network, and Spreydon Library’s after-hours returns will be cleared on weekdays throughout the closure. The nearest library is South Library at 66 Colombo Street. Reserved items will be made available at South Library unless otherwise requested.
The next library scheduled to undergo repairs is Papanui Library in mid-2015.
