The Hurunui District Libraries are now operating at the Traffic Light Setting Orange. While under the Orange setting when visiting your local library everyone over the age of 12 is required to wear a face mask, record their visit by scanning or signing in and maintain a 1 metre distance from others not in your bubble. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
During the school holidays Hawarden Community Library is open Tues/Wed/Fri 10 am until 2pm and Amuri Community Library and Service Centre is open Monday to Friday 11am until 2pm.
We look forward to seeing you !
