Former Cambridge Library staffers celebrated its 150th birthday with existing staff and invited guests at a Wine and Cheese evening last week.
Waipā mayor Jim Mylchreest cut the birthday cake and recalled how he was a council manager when the Cambridge Service Centre was built and the library moved into in 1998.
It was thought there would be enough room to expand for decades but such has been the library’s popularity in recent years, that an alternative would need to be found, he said.
Geoff Walker, who regularly plays at Resthaven, entertained at the function.
