About 80 people enjoyed visitors from the future on April 16 in an event designed to continue the conversation about the future of the Ngatea Library and Service Centre.

Different ways to give feedback

The fun Hauraki District Council event, held in the Ngatea War Memorial Hall, included a futuristic show, face painting, Lego and Duplo areas, and drawing tables.

There was also plenty of information about public libraries on offer, notice boards where people could post their ideas on post-it-notes, and areas where people could fill out feedback forms on paper or online.

Healthy turnout

Deputy Mayor Toby Adams said he was pleased with the huge turnout for the event.

“It shows everyone is passionate about the future of their library and service centre and willing to put forward their ideas about what it will look like,” he said.

Upcoming workshops and community book

Council is currently gathering feedback from the public about what they want in a library and community space in a month-long consultation process that will include other fun public events and all feedback will be summarised in a special community book.

There will also be workshops in Ngatea, Waitakaruru, Kaiaua, Kaihere and Turua over the next few weeks, with dates and venues to be confirmed.

Huge support for retaining library and service centre in existing building

Community feedback so far shows there’s huge support for keeping the Ngatea Library and Service Centre in its existing building.

But how will it look and feel?

However, council now wants to know more about what people want to see in an upgraded community space – how it will look and feel, and what services it needs to provide.

Feedback will close at 5pm on May 13. For more information, or to complete a feedback form, go to: We Need To Talk
