Road and bus shelter works starting
From Monday 11 June there will be road and construction works outside the library. The Greater Wellington Regional Council, together with Metlink are working with Wellington City Council to upgrade the pavement/kerb and bus shelter at the front of the library. This includes replacing the existing bus shelter (attached to the front of the library) with a new, modernised hub shelter.
It is expected to take around four weeks to complete the work. During this period, library access will be unaffected during opening hours. Once completed, the replacement shelter will look like this:
- Pre-school Storytime is every Tuesday at Brooklyn Library at 10:30am in the children's area
- Storytime runs for about half an hour, with stories and songs
- Pre-school storytimes are fun and free - there's no charge, and you don't have to book
- Storytime is aimed at pre-school age children (three and four years old) - but younger siblings are always welcome!
Free wireless internet (WIFI) is available at Brooklyn Library. There is a 100MB daily data limit per customer (network wide) and no password required. We welcome you to bring along your wireless-compatible device and connect to the WellyWiFi network. Please ask a team member if you require any assistance.
