The closure of Auckland’s central city library until further notice, will leave a group of the city’s homeless with nowhere to shelter ahead of winter, Stuff reports. The library has been facing maintenance issues since mid-March, with a mystery stink from roof works forcing a temporary closure in March. Feed the Homeless Auckland group member Tomasz Kurzdiel said the library, which has free wifi and computers, a place to sit down and other facilities, is a safe haven for the homeless. The Auckland central city library’s roof is almost 50-years-old and is now needing to be replaced, with several layers of roof needing to be taken down. Repair is expected to last until the end of 2021.
