Reminder: Helensville Library is hosting one of Auckland War Memorial Museum’s ADUs during November. Armistice Day (11 November) is a good time to explore the resources of the Online Cenotaph, lay a virtual poppy against a specific person’s name and contribute additional information to the database.
