COVID-19 Update

New Zealand is currently at Alert Level 4 in response to Covid-19 and apart from essential services the country is in lock-down to curb the transmission of the virus. Most Council staff are now working from home and this includes the fabulous Library team of Jo, Juls, Ilmars, Dido, Niamh and Jan. 

While the building may be closed, and some services have changed, the team are continuing to come up with innovative and creative solutions on how they can help bring the Opotiki Library you know and love to your 'bubble'.
