One year on and there are still fabulous articles about the Waiheke Library being published. This recent one, from the Waiheke Gulf News in October, talks about how well the library is running, and all the community support making it such a wonderful place to work, visit and read.
"I can honestly look you in the eye and tell you there have been no negatives. And people who would never have used the old library, and in fact some who have never used libraries at all, are now using and enjoying it”
Aside from tours of interested groups from other libraries and organisations, the building itself has now become a place where a lot of community groups are keen to host events and functions.
“That’s a part of the job I hadn’t anticipated quite so much, but it’s great because people are realising what a great community asset it is.”
