Fendalton service centre reopens
Christchurch Earthquake 2011
The Fendalton Library and service centre reopened today.
The library was closed last year after an engineering report showed it needed earthquake repair and strengthening.
Today was the first time the library had been open since February 22, 2011.
The building had been used as temporary premises for Christchurch City Council staff after the quake, and it had partially reopened in October before closing again in November.
Libraries and Information Unit Manager Carolyn Robertson said the library was an important community hub.
"We're looking forward to welcoming back many of our regular customers and, hopefully, some new ones," Robertson said.
