Matariki celebrates the Maori New Year - the first new moon following the rising of Matariki (or Pleiades). Nelson Public Libraries is celebrating with ongoing displays, and the following events at Elma Turner Library:
Come along to the Elma Turner Library 6.15pm Thursday June 18 to hear Page & Blackmore’s Stella Chrysostomou chat to Paddy about her latest and highly acclaimed novel Swimming in the Dark.
We had an amazing response to our recent Library Survey with 723 people completing the questionnaire.
Thanks to everyone who took the time to complete our recent survey on our Libraries’ service delivery. We received a very pleasing 714 completed surveys, and collation of the responses is currently happening. We’ll be using your responses to influence our future planning.
May is just around the corner so here's a list of our events to celebrate our local performers during NZ Music Month!
In early March, we celebrated 25 years in the Elma Turner Library building. It was a huge leap from the small, cramped and old Hardy Street building to the spacious Halifax Street building where the small book collection looked very thin on the new shelves.
For booking sessions, please come into the Children’s Library, ring 539 5507 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Elma Turner Library will be extending its opening hours for Saturday.
We are going to have our first Readers' Evening for 2015 on Thursday 26 March, 6.15pm at the Elma Turner Library. And In honour of Easter approaching our theme is Rabbits!
Through March and April, Nelson Public Libraries will embark on a project to survey customers to make sure that the libraries and library staff meet the needs of our community.
