Gore Library Moving to Temporary Site
The Gore Library will be relocating to the Encounter New Life Church, in Jacob Street (off Hokonui Drive) this month to allow work to start on the new library and community spaces at the James Cumming Wing.
The library is open as usual until Friday 16 April, when it will close for three weeks to allow staff to move to the new location.
The Library will reopen at 11 Jacob Street on Thursday 6 May. Jacob Street is located off Hokonui Drive. The temporary library site is near the end of the short street, on the left. Parking is on Jacob Street.
The Church will remain open for services and other activities, using spaces separate to the library. The library will be open normal hours, but will be closed on Sundays.
Space will be a bit tight, but our staff has done a great job of mapping out the church hall to make sure all the books will be there. Internet computers, the Ancestry computer, printer, copier and scanner will be available, as will WiFi.
If your books are due during the closed period (17 April to 6 May) they will be automatically extended until Monday 10 May.
The after-hours returns bin will be moved at the same time as we shift everything else. Please hold onto your books until the library reopens, or you can return them to the Mataura Library.
The Mataura Library will be open as usual 10.00am-5.00pm Monday – Friday. You are welcome to use this library anytime.
The new library and community space redevelopment is expected to take about 18 months to complete.
