Waikouaiti Library by Dunedin Public Libraries

Waikouaiti Library

Time for a change

Customers of the Waikouaiti Library are about to enjoy the benefits of consistent weekday opening hours after consultation showed overwhelming support for the proposal.

From March 8, 2021 the library will be open from 11am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, and 10am to 1pm on Saturday. The Service Centre will also be open 11am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.

The consistent opening hours will make it easier for the community to know when the library is open. It also results in a small increase in total opening hours by 30 minutes.

With the change of hours programmes, such as Friday’s Wriggle & Rhyme sessions, can be held before the library is open to the public, allowing babies and toddlers and their caregivers to spread out and make noise without disturbing other customers.
