Patea LibraryPlus temporarily relocating

The Patea LibraryPlus is temporarily relocating to the Patea Old Folks Hall while the Library gets a $300,000 facelift.

Group Manager of community services, Fiona Greenhill, says the LibraryPlus is going to have major exterior renovations done, including reroofing and recladding.

“The LibraryPlus will be closed on Monday 15 October while staff move across to the Patea Old Folks Hall at 131 Egmont Street, then reopen at 9am on Tuesday 16 October, at the temporary site,” says Ms Greenhill.

“The relocated LibraryPlus will have a reduced book stock but will operate full Council services as normal,” she says.

The renovation work is expected to take around 20 working weeks and staff are looking forward to returning to a modernised building by mid-February 2019.
