The Wairarapa Archive is now operating from the Library Learning Centre next to Masterton Library, after a move from offices on the opposite side Queen Street.

Archive opening hours remain as normal, from 1-5pm, Monday to Friday, with all usual services available.

The Archive operation was moved after the previous premises were found to be earthquake-prone.

Archivist Mark Pacey said it was business as usual for the team.

“All the familiar services are available and staff will be providing the same friendly, professional service. The new reading room includes the reference library, newspaper microfilm, and public computers.

“And we are very easy to find – right next to the library.”
