Libraries are really important for our community and we’re taking action to keep them open as much as possible while COVID-19 is in the community. However, things can change at short notice as the Omicron outbreak impacts staffing or our ability to safely provide all programmes and services.
A reminder, Nelson is still recording significant numbers of cases of COVID-19 per day, so wearing an effective mask when inside is a really important measure to protect our community. Thanks!

Small Time sessions are designed for under 2 year olds and combine songs, rhymes and stories into a free, fun 20 minute programme. This is a great opportunity for toddlers to develop pre-literacy skills and for parents to meet with other parents. See you there!
