The temporary Lyttelton Library at Trinity Hall in the Lyttelton Recreation Centre will close at 1pm on Saturday 25 February.
The newly refurbished Lyttelton Library and Customer Services will reopen on the corner of London and Canterbury Streets on Monday 13 March at 10am.
There will be no library services available for the two weeks while books, furniture and equipment are moved from the temporary library to the refurbished library.
Customers can return library items they have borrowed to the returns slot in front of the library on London Street. Holds will be available for pick up at Linwood Library at Eastgate unless requested otherwise.
Earthquake repairs to the library building have been combined with an extensive refurbishment, including a new roof, a new entrance on the corner of Canterbury and London Streets, and new carpets and paint. The refurbished library and customer services now has a larger children’s area, a magazine bay overlooking the Lyttelton Harbour, and two bookable meeting rooms for use by the public.
Christchurch City Council Customer Services will be available to walk-in customers for rates payments, dog licenses and other council service enquiries.
