Other Info: Central Library closed in 22 February 2011, because of eathquake damge to it and surrounding buildings. To provide some service in the CBD one smaller library with about 40,000 volumes was opened in July 2011 and another, with about 70,000 volumes, in December 2011. The first library has since changed location twice. Volume and circulation statistics are combined for both of these libraries. The Central building was demolished in September-November 2014 to make way for a convention centre yet to be built. A new central library is being built nearby to open in 2018
