Expressions of interest sought to lease current library

09 July 2019

No longer needing to house the town’s book collection, Meremere library is looking for a new occupier.

Waikato District Council is seeking expressions of interest from those keen to lease the 222m2 current library building on Te Puea Ave in Meremere.

Expressions of interest can come from community groups and organisations that are either an incorporated society or charitable trust. “Ideally, the new occupier will be based and working in the Meremere community and will offer services or programmes that have a positive effect on the Meremere community,” Waikato District Council Leasing Officer James Hanright says.

Construction of a new library in Meremere is underway and will be located next to the community hall, which will create a community hub.

Those interested in finding out more about the lease can phone Council on 0800 492 452 or email info@waidc.govt.nz.
