Extended weekend hours for Matuku Takotako: Sumner Centre from Saturday 18 August 2018

Matuku Takotako: Sumner Centre is currently open Monday to Friday from 10am to 6pm and from 10am to 1pm on Saturdays.  Extended weekend hours start on Saturday 18 August and mean the library will be open from 10am to 4pm on Saturdays and Sundays, boosting access to the popular centre.

“Matuku Takotako is the centre of the community, and local residents have made it very clear that they want seven-day access – especially those who work and go to school outside the area during the week,” Christchurch City Council Head of Libraries and Information Carolyn Robertson says.
