Tuakau Library Refurbishment Project

Tuakau, we want your ideas of what you would like to see in the Tuakau Library…

Whether you use the library or not your ideas are important to us.

We’re in the early stages of this project, but two things are for sure, it will happen and there will be more space.

We’ve got a budget of about $1.2 million so we will not be able to incorporate everyone’s ideas.

But we will try to fit in as many as our budget allows.

These are the concepts

First of all, we’ve had three concepts drawn up that fit the budget.

We want to find out which one you like best and hear of any changes you would make to that option.

Option one

This refurbishes the interior and  makes it bigger by 250 square metres, together with a small courtyard garden.

Option two

This option proposes a new entrance area, creating a shared plaza to connect the library, hall and supper room. This would enhance pedestrian safety and create a more social area.

Option three

This would be a significant redevelopment to use the existing library and supper room space. This option would create an improved common space at the entry for both library and hall foyer, which could also host displays and exhibitions.

Please fill in the brief survey – choose your option and give us your ideas about what you’d like to see in the library and how it could be used by you. The survey ends on 10 May 2019.
