“Heritage Week” has been a distinctive and much-loved celebration on Nelson’s calendar for many years. Last year the event grew into a true festival of heritage activities with over 40 individual events, over three exciting weeks.
International Women’s Day is about celebrating women’s achievement, raising awareness against gender bias and taking action for equality. There are many ways to can acknowledge the day, but one of our favourites it to read a book by a female author.
More than 658,000 people have visited the top of the South history website 'The Prow' (www.theprow.org.nz) since it was launched ten years ago in February 2009. The initiative was the brainchild of a group of librarians from the Nelson Public, Tasman and Marlborough District Libraries in response to frequent requests they received from library users asking for references and resources on local history.
The library is busy planning the major events and programmes in our calendar for 2019. These include Nelson Heritage Festival which takes place in April – the library is preparing a number of events for this. Details will be released this month.
Each month we select 10 fiction and non-fiction titles from our collection. Subscribe to our HotPicks newsletter to get these titles delivered to your inbox each month!
