The central library closing

By now you’ve probably heard the news that the Central Library building has closed. This will be rough for a lot of people; many (myself included) have been going there since we were kids. It’s a place to get books, sure, but also a meeting place and a chill out zone. This blog’s been pretty quiet while everyone’s getting settled. Hopefully normal service should resume soon!

Anyway, here’s everything you need to know about the library closing. Check out our social media pages for more.

    Information about how to access the books usually held in Wellington Library has been very hard/impossible to track down. This has been frustrating, not knowing if/when any books from the huge collection are/will be available to the Wellington public.
