Regrettably, a technical error was discovered this week with the system set-up to record the online submissions for the Draft Libraries 2025 Facilities Plan. As a result, all feedback submitted online before Monday 26 May has not been recorded. The closing date for submissions has now been extended to 5pm on Sunday 8 June. Christchurch City Libraries apologises for this regrettable error and encourages everyone who has submitted online to take the time to re-submit. Your feedback is extremely valuable in this process.
