Greerton's new $3.65 million library looks likely to retain its name unless councillors order a rethink tomorrow.

A recommendation to stick with the status quo of "Greerton Library" goes to tomorrow's meeting of the council which is under pressure to make a decision well before the new building opens in July.

The existing name includes the current Maori alternative Te Ao Marama Ki Tutarawananga which means a place of learning.

Tauranga libraries manager Jill Best and council customer services manager Margaret Batchelar have argued against the wishes of Greerton Mainstreet to rename the library Greerton Village Library.

Their report said a decision was needed as soon as possible for signage because the new library was due to open mid-July - a year after the old building was demolished.
