Orange Light Settings

We are pleased to let you know that under Orange Light settings, from Tuesday 7 June BDS office hours in Christchurch will return to normal:

9:00AM-5:00PM Mon-Fri

As always, outside these hours, the after hours drop box is still available for returns.

We now feel that enough staff have recovered and that we will be able to manage any future illness/isolation in our team to keep the book club reads coming! 

In addition:

  • Please wear a mask when entering the office and maintain at least 1m distance from other staff and members
  • The books for sale shelf is OPEN!
  • Please continue to return books to us within seven days of your meeting if you can. With many groups still experiencing illness and isolation, we have more overdues than ever before (even during the Christchurch earthquakes!) If your books will be back late due to COVID, please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Thank you for your understanding during this time as we've worked to protect the health and wellbeing of BDS staff and ensured an uninterrupted service to our 1,300 book clubs across the country.
