NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 15/06/2016

Wellington's central library has reopened after being evacuated and `swept' by police.

A suspicious package was found on Wednesday afternoon, forcing the closure of the library and the Wellington City Council service centre in Civic Square.

A council spokesman said police responded quickly and did a thorough sweep of the buildings.

The package was not found to be a public safety risk, he said.
