Aranui Library opened
Booklovers in the Eastern suburbs flocked to the official opening of the Aranui Library yesterday morning.
Christchurch mayor Bob Parker cut the ribbon and the Aranui High School kapa haka group performed at the ceremony.
The new 500 square metre building was redesigned following the February 22 earthquake to ensure it met 100 per cent of the new building code.
The library houses a collection of about 14,000 books as well as DVDs, CDs, electronic games, newspapers, and magazines, with about 15,000 items in total, said libraries and and information unit manager Carolyn Robertson.
It also offers free wifi, 10 free computers, three children's games computers, an Xbox Kinect, and three iPads with free internet access.
