The Christchurch City Council archives have been closed since the September earthquake in the Canterbury region but will be re-opening on Tuesday 15 February 2011.
The Christchurch City Council Archives are housed at Recall, 12 Braeburn Drive, Hornby. This is a temporary location whilst Recall build a new facility which will be completed at the end of 2011 and includes a specifically built archival vault. Access to the archives is by appointment only on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, 9.30am-1pm. Please send any requests for information or queries to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact direct by calling (03) 941 8614.
There was no damage to the archives at all as the result of the earthquakes and aftershocks. I am looking forward to seeing our regular customers again, and once again getting familiar with the collection.
