Feedback on the new design for the $7.8 million Devonport Library will be sought at a public workshop next month. Auckland Council s Devonport library project team will hold an all-day workshop with drop-in ses- sions throughout the day on March 1. The sessions will be held in the library foyer and the team are also hoping to have information available on the Devonport wharf during commuter hours. At the workshop the library team will present the winning concept design by Athfield Architects and ask for feedback about both the design and the use of space. They will then take the ideas from both the stakeholders and community and develop them. Athfield Architects won the ten- der with a concept plan showing a new take on a library, with inter- nal spaces like a tiered lounge and quiet room decked out with a fire- place. They propose that the library be equipped with far reaching wifi capabilities so that people can browse the digital collection from the terrace and courtyard 24 hours a day. However concerns have been raised by Devonport-Takapuna Local Board member Mike Cohen that the design doesn t fit the community s wishes. You ve really not addressed the concern people have voiced that there needs to be a relationship from Victoria Rd to the beach, he says. Times of the drop-in sessions will be posted on the Auckland Council website. Dog owners reminded on hot cars Dog owners are being encour- aged to take extra care when travelling in cars with their pets because of the continuing hot weather. The call comes from the SPCA and Auckland Council s animal management team. Just 15 minutes can be enough for an animal s body temperature to climb to danger- ous levels. On a 20 degree day, tem- peratures in a car parked in the shade can exceed 32 degrees, and hit a scorching 70 to 90 degrees if parked in the sun. With more hot days on the way, owners need to be mindful of the added dangers, says Auckland Council s licensing and compliance manager Gra- ham Bodman. Each year SPCA Auckland deals with dozens of cases of animals left unattended in hot vehicles, which is the reason why its No Hot Dogs in Hot Cars is a recurring summer message.
