Support for knocking down library

Tear down the library and start again. That was the message to councillors on Tuesday during the first day of public submissions on the future of Wellington’s Central Library.

In June, prior to public consultation, councillors voted 14-1 indicating their preference was to strengthen and upgrade the earthquake-prone building, rather than demolish and rebuild. The $200 million repair option was more expensive than a rebuild, but was preferred because it promised to be open again sooner and would retain heritage elements.
However, there was a strong backlash among some of the public who submitted, many raising concerns over the expense and uncertainty of repair work.

We rely on donations to be able to achieve the work we do to ensure seniors are not left lonely, that they have groceries delivered, and are well taken care of and informed. Our volunteers always work hard and make many sacrifices to reach out to older people across the Wellington Region.

We are extra proud of our volunteer team in 2020 as they stepped up during Covid-19 and ensured hundreds of seniors had someone to talk to, during and after, lockdown. They made thousands of phone calls and even delivered groceries to seniors who couldn’t get down to the supermarket. They are fantastic, and we wouldn’t be able to achieve all we do without them.

That’s why we want to say a big thank to them all this Christmas. We would love to show them how much they mean to us and to older people across the Region. Can you help us do this?

Whittaker's and Annah Stretton have generously donated goods for our volunteers. But we are in need of more help. If you can help us or know of someone or a business that can, please email me at volunteer@acwellington.org.nz

Thank you very much.
