Helensville Library news

Kia ora koutou katoa
With changes to COVID alert levels always a possibility, I thought it would be a good time to remind everyone of how the library operates under each level.
Levels 3 and 4:  The library is closed.
Depending upon the situation, our external returns slot may also be closed.  Last year, the slot was closed until Level 2.  During our short lockdown in February, it remained open.
Level 2:  The library is open but physical distancing requirements mean some changes:
· Only some of the computers are available
· Some furniture will be removed
· No programmes: so, no Kids Time or visits to Craigweil / ECEs / schools
· No jigsaw puzzles for children are available
· No colouring-in pens / crayons are available – colouring-in sheets may be taken home
· Staff cannot spend an extended period of time with customers – which means limited computer / device assistance, and no Skinny Jump internet sign-ups in the library (these can be done through calling Auckland Libraries’ main number and completing the process over the telephone)
· Sign in with the NZ COVID Tracer QR code or the physical form, held behind the desk
Level 1:
· Everything back to normal
· Sign in with the NZ COVID Tracer QR code or the physical form, held behind the desk
If you are curious about the reference to Skinny Jump internet – you can find out more on the Auckland Libraries’ blog: aucklandlibrariesblog.blogspot.com/2018/08/spark-jump.html.
Auckland Libraries is a local partner for Skinny Jump, a programme that provides access to modems and a subsidised prepaid wireless internet connection. It is available to anyone who does not have a broadband connection at home because cost is a barrier.
