Easter 2016

Friday 25 March is Good Friday (note: not Easter Friday, I’m a stickler about that one). In New Zealand both the Friday (Good Friday) and the Monday of Easter are statutory public holidays, so libraries will be closed. But Saturday and Sunday aren’t public hols – libraries will be open their normal hours, except Linwood Library at Eastgate which will be closed on Easter Sunday.

Friday 25 March Closed
Saturday 26 March Open normal hours
Sunday 27 March Open normal hours (except Linwood Library at Eastgate – closed)
Monday 28 March Closed
