Cheviot Community Library and Service Centre Opening October!

Friday 14 June 2013

Chris Hill has been awarded the contract for the renovations to the building and he will be starting work on it next month.  Lucinda Diack is assisting us with the interior design and selection of furniture and fittings. We plan to open the new combined facility in October and will be advertising for staff shortly.

The Cheviot library book stock has been well read by our existing borrowers.  Books for all libraries in the Hurunui are purchased centrally and distributed around the whole district.  The Cheviot Library will close for 2 weeks prior to its move. During this closure most of the books that are in the Cheviot collection will be dispersed to other Hurunui libraries and a new Cheviot collection will be built from titles held in other libraries as well as brand new stock. The aim is to open in our new location with a refreshed and new collection that will provide completely new titles for our existing and new customers.

Existing Cheviot books will still be available - items can be borrowed from (and returned to) any library in the district free of charge. Regular courier deliveries ensure delivery of your requests within just a few days.
