Congratulations to the winners of our library summer colouring competition!
Library staff were delighted with the number and quality of entries. We were impressed with the use of colour and the effort and time that young artists put in. The works are on display in the libraries.
Thanks to all the entrants for brightening up our summer, and to our judge Merren, one of our fabulous library supporters.

Do you borrow creative books, crafts, cooking, etc? Why not bring in your creations to show our librarians who will be keen to take photos or perhaps even offer to taste test the occasional cooking treat.
One clever reader borrowed the book Patchwork Bags and brought in her finished products to show us.

Work on the new Paeroa library will be started in 2014!
The new building will be located on the corner of Mackay and Willoughby Streets (opposite the main entrance to the domain).
Currently in the Paeroa library we are asking for your ideas for the new library, so please come on in and write them down and have it displayed for everyone to see.

Your library's resources are as easy to use as the Internet, without the hassle or risk.
Did you know that fewer than 10% of search-engine results offer relevant research information?
Wikipedia and other user-generated sites can be a starting point for research, but even Wikipedia warns it "makes no guarantee of validity".
Your library's online resources contain only authentic, expert-chosen books, images, newspapers, magazines, audio/video and interactive tools. You can trust the content.

Our ebook and audiobook download service using OverDrive has been live for a while now and is proving popular.
The National Library's Print Disabilities Service offers audio books to adults, young adults and children who have a print disability. Find out more
