The Elma Turner Library is the largest and most centrally-located of the three Nelson City Council libraries.

Council has budget for a programmed upgrade to the Elma Turner Library allocated in the Long Term Plan 2018-2028. Approximately $14 million has been allocated for this purpose from 2018-2023.

The objectives of the Elma Turner Library Redevelopment are that:
(a) The new library will be a welcoming indoor public space for all citizens providing learning opportunities for all.
(b) It will be a landmark for the city and connect the river to the CBD.
(c) The new library will reach more people and support learning for more people, thereby helping to create a smart community for the “smart little city”, and making Nelson an even better place to live, work and play.

Nelson City Council (Council) seeks a consultant to manage community engagement for the redevelopment of the Elma Turner Library as follows:
(a) In cooperation with and under supervision of the Library Manager investigate what the community wishes for their new public library.
(b) Utilise modern ways of working with community involvement such as design thinking or similar approaches.
(c) Employ knowledge about modern libraries, and build bridges from professional knowledge through to community outcomes.
(d) Help to mediate expectations between decision makers and the public.
