THANK YOU RATA FOUNDATION
We are delighted to let you know that the Rata Foundation awarded us a grant of $7000.00 in September 2017. This grant is to meet our operating costs and our Librarian’s wages. These expenses represent a substantial proportion of our Library’s annual budget . Thanks to Rata Foundation we can use the funds raised through our membership fees, fundraising and so forth to expand and improve our service and build up our toy stock. This is a tremendous boost for our Library.
Final Sessions and Christmas Hires
Please note the last session before we close for the Christmas period will be Saturday 9 December. All toys must be returned by the 9th of December, except for new loans made to cover the Christmas Hire period. Christmas Hires are for the entire Christmas Period meaning they do not need to be returned until the Library reopens in the New Year. Each toy hired over the Christmas Hire period costs $5.
For the sessions scheduled to take place on November 30th , December 2nd , 7th and 9th you will be able to return toys but any new loans will be for the full Christmas hire period and will therefore incur the $5 fee per toy just mentioned.
We re-open on Saturday 27th of January 2017 but our Librarian is likely to stagger your return dates to avoid a rush. We will be closed on Saturday 3rd February for the Waitangi break.
Closed on Labour Weekend and Show Weekend
Please remember that we will be closed on the Saturdays of Labour Weekend (21 October) and Show Weekend (18 November).
