Beckenham residents can now access a temporary service centre while the suburb's earthquake-hit library is repaired.

The Christchurch City Council opened the temporary centre yesterday on the site of the South Library and Beckenham Service Centre.

The building was closed in July after detailed inspections revealed it was below the new building standard.

Council public affairs general manager Lydia Aydon said the temporary centre would have all the services that were available at the centre before it was closed.

Temporary repairs and quake-strengthening work would be done at the library and service centre soon, she said.

The facility is expected to reopen by the end of the year.
