Pitopito Kōrero

With the move to the Orange setting of the COVID-19 Protection Framework, we're pleased to share that we will be able to resume programmes at Stoke and Nightingale Library Memorial (including planned school holiday events). Keep an eye on our events calendar to see what's on. 

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 hundreds of cases of COVID-19 per day, so wearing an effective mask when inside is a really important measure to protect our community. Thanks!

Please check our website or Facebook page for the most up-to-date information. We can be reached at library@ncc.govt.nz or on (03) 546 8100 if you have any further questions.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. Stay safe and well out there; kia kaha.

Holiday Hours

The library will be closed on the following public holidays:
  • Good Friday: Friday 15 April 
  • Easter Monday: Monday 18 April
  • Nightingale Library Memorial will be closed on Easter Sunday: Sunday 17 April 
  • Anzac Day: Monday 25 April
Note that we are open both Saturday 16 April (Stoke and Elma Turner) and Sunday 17 April (Elma Turner) so you can pop in for some holiday reading. As always, our range of digital resources is available 24/7 so you can watch films, read and listen to great books, and more - all from your own home. Ask us if you want some help with these platforms.

Every beat tells a story 

The Heart Foundation is encouraging everyone to know their pulse and check it regularly. Is it a steady beat or is it irregular? An irregular pulse could be a sign of a heart rhythm problem.

The Heart Foundation will be in the library offering free pulse checks on Wednesday 20 April:
  • Elma Turner Library 10.30am – 12.30pm
  • Stoke Library 1.30 – 2.30pm
Pop in to get your pulse checked.
