Pinehaven Library is not under any threat of closure, Mayor Wayne Guppy says.

Recent discussion about the library prompted speculation about the branch library's future, Mr Guppy said in his opening address at Wednesday's full Upper Hutt City Council meeting.

Statistics on the library's usage prompted discussion at council committee level, although no move to investigate the issue was made.

Councillor Dave Wheeler publicly commented on the library's annual cost of $45,000 to the city and its viability.

"There was some discussion about the closure of Pinehaven but that is certainly not the intention of this council," Mr Guppy said.

Pat Christianson, a Pinehaven- based councillor, welcomed Mr Guppy's certainty on the issue.

"I'm happy the issue has been clarified and the library's future confirmed," she says.
