Well, we’re gearing up for another awesome year of our summer reading programme: Kia Mâia te Whai Dare to Explore.
This year, we’re exploring the past present and future: onamata inamata anamata Where – and when – will our explorers’ journeys take them?
Children between the ages of 5 and 12 can register from now.
The programme begins on 9 December and runs until 20 January.
Library staff are ready to help children complete their challenges whenever they visit the library.
As well as the fun events and activities around Kia Mâia te Whai Dare to Explore, Santa will be in the house! He has a busy day planned, with visits around the area.
Santa Storytime at the Library will be Thursday 19 December at 3pm, with the chance to have your photos taken with Santa after storytime.
