Q&A with Kirsten Allan, Community Librarian at Papamoa Branch Library in Tauranga

2017 is certainly disappearing at a rapid pace! Here's what we've been keeping busy with: 

We asked Tauranga Hospital Library Librarian Raewyn Adams a few questions about her library journey

A challenge we face as a member association is quantifying what each individual member gets from being part of a national network. The best response is provided by our members, who are willing to share their highs, lows, and in-betweens.

The ladies had told us of large murals painted on building walls in Napier central. So off Lis and I drive in the vague direction of Napier central. By luck (rather than map skills) we found the CBD…hmm murals are hard to locate. There she is- Pania of the Reef in glorious technicolour on the side of a multistory building.

In December 2016 we held a #LIANZABling holiday decorating competition where New Zealand libraries could send in picture of their decorated libraries. We were so impressed with the effort that went in to the entry from Dunedin Public Library that we wanted to showcase it here on the blog.

We have been amazed at all the creative, thoughtful and simply stunning holiday decorating entries we received for the #LIANZABling competition. The LIANZA Executive Committee has judged the entries and the winner was AUT Library!
