Meeting

Branch Meetings

Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month, February to November inclusive, from 5.00 p.m., in the Meeting Room on the 1st Floor of the Invercargill Public Library, 50 Dee Street (central city), Invercargill.   Speakers/topics are arranged, and research facilities and assistance are available when the Resources Room is open (see Branch Resources window).  Visitors are always welcome.

warning The meeting start time was reviewed in September and the decision was made to continue this time for 2021. Come for a cuppa and a biscuit at 4.30pm, then we're ready to commence at 5 o'clock. Unfortunately the library closes at 6pm, so those using the carpark or the lifts in the building must be aware of this closure.
