The new Devonport Library, 'Te Pātaka Kōrero o Te Hau Kapua,' has drawn a record number of visitors since opening in February with 93,369 visits between February and April this year.

The building responds to changes in customer expectations of self service, digital and eBook delivery, networking, studying and relaxing.

The community has embraced its new library and the positive feedback has been overwhelming.

In 2014, there were only 64 new memberships during this period and 153 in the same period during 2013.
