North Shore Libraries re-open for happy local readers

Wednesday 17th November saw the long-awaited re-opening of our wonderful North Shore libraries in Devonport, Takapuna, Northcote, Birkenhead and Glenfield. You might not be able to tell, but these Devonport locals were grinning from ear-to-ear behind their masks, once again enjoying this fantastic resource in the heart of our local communities. Many grateful customers are  acknowledging how delighted they are that the libraries are finally open again. However there are a few restrictions that continue to be in place: wear a mask, check in using the NZ Covid Tracer app or use a paper sign-in slip, and respect the two metre physical distancing guidelines. There are also limits to the number of people allowed inside each library at the same time, which varies according to the size of each library. Visitors are also politely asked to keep their visits relatively sort (suggested 30 minutes) so the wonderful teams of librarians can meet everyone's needs. Click and collect is still available for anyone who wants a quick visit, as are public computers, printing and wi-fi. Visit the website for full details: www.aucklandlibraries.govt.nz
