Curious about what the library looked like after the earthquake?

After seeing the disturbing photos of the University of Canterbury Library, we all wondered how the Christchurch City Libraries held up.

For us curious types, here’s some photos of the Central Library after the earthquake, before our intrepid staff started on the big cleanup.

Central Library : after the quake

The Central Library will re-open tomorrow, Friday 10 September from 9am to 5pm, and resume normal weekend hours for Saturday and Sunday (10am to 4pm).
Akaroa Library is open today, and we will let you know more about other branches as they are checked and inspected.

    I hope the community libraries remember to take pictures before tidying up! I guess we should look at it as an exercise in shelf checking.

    We were very lucky compared to our colleagues at the University of Canterbury. And it was a great team effort yesterday for the cleanup. 🙂
