It’s hard to believe that we’ve been at the mall for over a year!  Seems like only last week that we were moving into South City to set up our wee library, and now we are counting the sleeps till the brand new big shiny Tuam branch opens. Monday 23 July will be the big opening day down at Tuam Street, but Central South City Library will be closing this Sunday 15 July to give us time to pack up properly.

It’s been a great year down here – we’ve got used to working in a ‘small but perfectly formed’ space; made friends with the supermarket staff and the yummy sushi people; built a solid core of regular and committed computer users who arrive every morning at 9am on the dot; had so many great conversations with customers about books and libraries and snow and quakes and all things ChurChur; got to know all our lovely Sumner and Redcliffs customers who arrive on the shuttle each week; become a regular part of so many people’s lives …

We will be very sad to leave, and we know that you guys will miss us being here (because you’ve told us!) Come and say goodbye until Sunday, and then we can all count the sleeps together until Tuam Street opens, and we will see you there on Monday the 23rd!
