Open­ing hours

Central Leader - - NEWS -

Li­brary hours have been saved from the chop. Auck­land Coun­cil’s bud­get com­mit­tee has voted to stan­dard­ise li­brary open­ing hours, mean­ing changes pro­posed to re­duce to­tal hours over Auck­land will not go ahead. It had been pro­posed in the draft 10-year bud­get that li­brary hours could be re­duced to cut costs. But af­ter strong public feed­back, the com­mit­tee de­cided the to­tal num­ber of open­ing hours re­gion-wide should stay the same, but be dis­trib­uted dif­fer­ently. Lo­cal boards may choose to fund ex­tra open­ing hours at their lo­cal li­braries.
