23 January Meeting

  • In our town the Kaikohe library is an absolute treasure. There is so much you can find in there - and it's much more than books. But there are big changes afoot. On Wednesday Rotarians paid a visit and librarian Jess Tuckerman gave an overview of what's happening.

  • Jess told us the library building was built more than 50 years ago and apart from an extension in 1981 has changed little since. But the Internet age means libraries have to rethink what they do and what services they provide for their users. Kaikohe library is doing just that.

  • Jess showed us a Lego model put together by one of her staff members showing a proposed reconfiguration. One of the big changes is a large cull of the non-fiction because people can now find information on-line. Interior shelving will be reduced from four to three rows high. A meeting room with Internet access will be provided and the location of the children's section will change. Most significantly, the interior will be repainted.

  • Work will start in March and is expected to be finished in May. The library may have to close for several weeks to enable work to be done.

  • Jess said she is keen to hear from users on what services should be provided. Survey forms are available and need to be returned by the end of next week.
