Upper Riccarton Library to close for repair and refurbishment from Sun 9 April 4pm, scheduled to re-open Monday 1 May at 9am

The library and café on Main South Road will be closed from Monday 10 April until Sunday 30 April as work to replace the bathrooms and upgrade the air conditioning, lighting systems and paintwork takes place.

The upgrade has been planned to coincide with the Riccarton High School holidays, however some work will continue into the first week of the school term. The school, which timetables some classes into the library learning centre, has relocated these to accommodate the work.

Red Café will be utilising the closure period to upgrade the café service area.

During the three week closure, reserved items will be made available to collect from Fendalton Library unless otherwise requested.

Items cannot be returned to Upper Riccarton Library during this period, but can be returned to any other library across the city network.

The mobile library will visit Upper Riccarton Tuesdays 10.30am–11.30am and Fridays 3.30pm–4.30pm throughout the closure period.
