Welcome to Library Week 2010

This week is 'Library Week' in libraries all around New Zealand. Information on this can be found on the 'Library Week' website. There are several competitions happening too, including writing and making a video.

The theme this year is "Ask Me - You Might Be Surprised! He Taonga Te Patai."

This theme reflects librarians not only as people who issue books to you, but as people who have a world of knowledge and experience at their fingertips. All you need to do is - ask! The Te Reo translation means "to ask is precious" which signifies the importance of teaching, listening and learning."

So, pop into our library and say a friendly "Hello" to Karen, and just ask if you need help with what book to read next, or information for your inquiry.

  1. I have some children from my class who are going to come in and ask you for advice on a good book to read. I told them that you have read nearly every book in the library and love finding the perfect book for any reader.

    Mrs Winter - she's great at making perfect book - kid matches. Make sure you go in and ask for her advice. Get into a good book.
