So Much More than Just Books

Our libraries had a bumper year in 2018 with over 565,000 visitors, more than 20,000 people attending training or events, and 520,000 borrowed books, ebooks and audio books.

Overall it was a 15 percent increase of visitors since last year. What this shows is that people come to our libraries for more than books.

In 2019 we have something planned for everyone.

Arterial Road Resurfacing Next Week

A bout of wet weather in December put paid to plans to seal Ohoka Road West - the arterial road running through west Kaiapoi. The work was rescheduled to the New Year and this time the weather forecast looks to be playing its part.

Harvest Moving from the Coast

The harvest continues to travel on at a fair pace and our contractors moved into Block 3 adjacent to Pegasus township to harvest windblown trees. They will also tidy up the edge of the forest to make it safe, as the remainder of this block will be harvested in 2019.

Exciting Times for Kaiapoi

How do you want the new reserves in the Kaiapoi Regeneration Areas to look and feel?  The draft Reserves Master Plan seeks to create a connected and vibrant Kaiapoi, to bring nature back, to provide space for sport and recreation.

Update on Harvest Activities

If you are in the Woodend Beach area, you will see some large harvest machinery and equipment as we gear up to start preparations for the harvest of the coastal forest.

Ceremony Marks A Recovery Milestone

Another milestone in the earthquake recovery process is being celebrated today in Kaiapoi, with the ceremonial handover of regeneration land ownership from the Crown to Waimakariri District Council and Te Kōhaka o Tūhaitara Trust.
