Bookbus change of location – Green Island: Friday 6.00pm – 7.30pm

July 6, 2010 at 2:26 pm | Posted in Bookbus, Library_News | Leave a comment

The Bookbus stop on Main South Road in Green Island has moved to the opposite side of the road, from Friday July 2 2010.

The new stop is outside the Plunket and the NZ PostShop buildings, opposite its previous location. There has been no change to the timetable.

This change was made because a new pedestrian crossing is being installed close to the previous bookbus stop, making it too small to share with ORC buses.

Library Holds – A Popular Service

June 22, 2010 at 8:55 am | Posted in Blueskin Bay, Bookbus, City Library, Library_News, Mosgiel, Port Chalmers, Waikouaiti | Leave a comment

When an item is unavailable due to being on loan, or at another of our network of Libraries, a customer can place a ‘hold’ on it.

Placing a hold is a popular service for Library customers, and from 1 July 2010 it will cost $1.00 to place an item on hold.

This is the first increase since 2001 and brings the Library into line with other New Zealand metropolitan libraries, where holds charges vary from between $1.00 and $2.00 per item.

The holds charge will apply only to adults, ensuring children and young people under the age of 18 continue to have free access to this important service.

Bernie Hawke, Library Services Manager, comments

“The reason holds are popular is because they represent such good value for money. While this is a significant increase, it is still only a small percentage of the costs involved in providing the service. I’m sure library customers will acknowledge this, along with the saving in time and effort for them when they place a hold.”
