Alert Level 2 Update

NPDC Libraries we will reopen 9am on Friday 10th September under Alert Level 2.

Visitors to our libraries must scan or sign in, wear a mask and keep 2 metres social distancing.

Thanks in advance for being patient and respecting our staff who are doing their best to keep everyone safe.

Under Alert Level 2 all library hours of operation will stay the same except for one change - there will be no late night (on Wednesday) instead the Library will close at 6pm.

In our libraries, some furniture will be removed to maintain spacing, there will be removal of all children’s toys, dress ups etc. At Waitara and Puke Ariki every second/third public computer will be turned off to maintain the 2m rule.

Library Programming/Outreach/Activities:

  • There will be no programming / Outreach including the Mobile Library.
  • We will maintain the Any Questions schedules and continue selection of resources
  • There will be no lending of chrome books, or use by the public of digital kit (eg 3D printing)
  • There is a blanket cancellation of all groups/organisations meeting in the library.
  • Puke Ariki museum education classes are not being offered for the remainder of Term 3 due to Alert Level 2 restrictions. We are planning to teach classes in Term 4 so welcome your bookings. Alert levels in Term 4 will guide us on what can be offered from our current programmes.
