Wellington Central Library to get new name: Te Matapihi ki te Ao Nui

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

When Wellington’s Central Library finally re-opens in 2025, it will be under a new official name: Te Matapihi ki te Ao Nui.
The name has been used as a secondary title for several years, but will now be recognised as the official name of the library as part of a commitment to consult with mana whenua throughout the design process.
Te Matapihi ki te Ao Nui approximately translates to ‘The window to the wider world’.
In October 2020, city councillors voted unanimously to fix and upgrade the earthquake-prone building, which has been closed since March 2019, and officers were told to explore design options.

Polluter to be fined

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

The Wellington City Council is prosecuting a driver who allegedly polluted the south coast.

"The irresponsible actions of a driver not securing their load last Friday resulted in thousands of polystyrene balls scattered around the south coast, devastating for the environment and marine life, and frustrating the affected communities. We identified the offender thanks to eagle-eyed locals, and have started the process of fining him $200."
