Your Library at Level 2

Monday 1 March 2021

We’ve done this before and we can to do it again. 

At present we are at Level 2 only until Sunday 7 March. We will update this information to reflect changes to the situation as they arise.  

This information applies to all four of our branches – Motueka, Murchison, Tākaka and Richmond – unless otherwise specified. 

Here’s what you need to know about your library at Level 2. 
Opening hours 
  • Library opening hours will remain unchanged. 

Health and safety 
  • Please do not come to the library if you are feeling unwell. You can send a friend or family member on your behalf. 

  • We invite you to visit the library for short (up to 30 minute) visits. 

  • We are a contact tracing site. Customers must scan the contact tracing QR code at the entrance to the library, or fill in our contact tracing register forms if scanning the QR code is not possible. 

  • Please use the provided hand sanitiser when entering the library, and consider wearing a mask while in the library. 

  • Library staff will be regularly cleaning high touch surfaces in the library throughout the day. 

  • Please maintain physical distancing of 1m while in the library. 

  • We’d like just one family member to come into the library at a time (within reason of course - parents with small children and no possible caregivers are an exception). Children must stay within arms distance of the adult and not interact with other customers.  

  • Children under the age of 14 years must be accompanied by an adult caregiver while in the library.  

  • Please use self-service kiosks if possible. 

  • Our online resources are available and we encourage you to access our ebooks, audiobooks, movies without visiting the physical library. 

Events and room bookings 
  • Events and room bookings will go ahead with contact tracing, physical distancing and use of hand sanitiser. If physical distancing is not possible (ie the group is too large) then the event or room booking will be postponed until we are at Level 1 again. Wondering if the event you were planning on attending at the library is still happening? Check here.

  • The Imaginarium at Richmond Library will be closed until we return to Level 1. 

We will update this information as the situation evolves. Please check regularly for updates.
