The chess and checker sets will still be available every day on the Napier Library forecourt.

Library patrons are also encouraged to use the public goBay bus service (routes 12 and 13) that runs from Dalton Street by Napier Library, to Taradale. Both Routes 12 and 13 stop near the Taradale Clock Tower; Route 13 also stops near Taradale Shops on Puketapu Road and outside Taradale Primary school in Church Road. There is a walkway through the park from near there to the Library.
