Libraries encourage to look on the bright side
Libraries encourage customers to look on the bright side
Customers looking to brighten their winter will be pleasantly surprised if they visit their local library during Library Week 11-17 August.
In line with the theme “Libraries add colour – He Kohinga Marama”, libraries throughout the city have adopted colour themes to display their wares. For example, visit Hornby Library and you will “Rendezvous with Red,” or call into Bishopdale Library for a “Panorama of Purple”.
“When we talk about libraries adding colour, we’re referring to the way they add interest and variety to people’s lives. We provide a huge range of resources and services for Christchurch people, great community meeting places, and we also work in so many ways with other organisations to add to people’s lives,” says Nicki Moen, Acting Christchurch City Libraries Manager.
Another aspect of Library Week will be New Zealand-wide library readings of Patricia Grace’s The Kuia and the Spider/ Te Kuia me te Pungawerewere. More than 100 schools and libraries will read the story simultaneously at 10.30am on Tuesday 12 August.
“We welcome new members
during the week too. Many Christchurch residents don’t
realise that membership is free,” says Nicki
