Christchurch has an excellent network of libraries. I really appreciate that there are no fees on a childs membership, and there is such a huge range of childrens books available. I like the City south/beckenham library, it has an excellent cafe.
Chch City Libraries have a wide range of books to cater to the reading needs of kids and adults. Facilities in the libraries are world-class and advanced, including complimentary wi-fi for guests. I always go to New Brighton Library and Linwood Library. The former has the most beautiful view as it is located at New Brighton Pier. I love to sit at level 2 of the library to read and enjoy the breath-taking view of the Pacific Ocean! The latter is situated within Eastgate Shopping Centre which makes it convenient for me to borrow books and do my shopping. It even has an entertainment area for users to play Xbox!
CCC libraries always have an extensive range of books at their libraries to choose from. Most also have adjoining cafes were you can enjoy a coffee. Heaps of different activities put on too like storytimes for the little ones and their book sales are the best time to get a bargain for you collection of books at home
We go to Spreydon library the most- lovely small library with staff who go the extra mile to help. Can have limited book rotation so sometimes hard to get different books unless you reserve titles you are after online to get delivered there.
I go to Peterborough street library as it's close to where I am at times, stopped in yesturday and ended up been able to vote, I'm very pleased with the huge range of books on offer it's amazing we can burrow them for free, lovely staff never had an issue they are always on hand to help me find a book I am after, also love that the kids can use the computers for free and be safe on them as they can't use Facebook etc on them
We are so lucky to have so many amazing libraries throughout Christchurch. My little ones love checking out all the different ones. All we have looked at have fantastic selections of books, lovely staff and are clean and tidy. Best of all they are all free to visit and hire from!
Christchurch has the best libraries in the country! The range of programmes, events, books and eresources is fantastic. My little one loves Babytimes - it's different at each library but always super engaging and fun. Love having a coffee afterwards too :) Great job guys!
