Libraries closing for RFID installation

Thursday 29 September 2016

Tasman District Libraries are on the brink of an exciting new development in the way library materials are issued and returned.

In mid-October we’re installing equipment and going live with RFID. Issuing books will be a faster process. And when you return items they’ll be discharged off your card much more quickly. Borrowers in Richmond and Motueka will also have the option of issuing their own items using our new self-check kiosks.

Installing the equipment involves closing each library for a day or two.

The libraries will be closed on the following days:

Richmond Library - Tuesday 18 and Wednesday 19 October

Motueka Library - Thursday 20 October

Takaka Library - Friday 21 October

Murchison Library will remain open as usual.

You can still return your books through the after-hours book drops and renew items via the library website or by phone or email. We’ll also be available to take your telephone queries as usual.

We apologise for any inconvenience the closures might cause.
