Your Library Newsletter - Issue 15

While the library is closed, the library team are keeping busy with lots of activities:

  • Seth, Barry and Sue are helping Manawatu District Council to deliver supplies and prescriptions to those in need.
  • Adie and Vicki are Essential Service Workers in Council's Emergency Response Centre.
  • Kirsty is busy cataloguing our new content at home ready for reopening.
  • Warrick is making STEAM videos with his children for you to view from home.
  • The rest of us are keeping the online resources ticking over, responding to your emails/messages on social media and thinking of new activities we can get stuck into when we're open again.

We are all experiencing a time in our lives where what we want most in the world is out of reach - our family, our friends, our colleagues, our normalcy. For the first time, instead of banding together to fight this burden we must stay apart - Distance makes us Stronger!

During this time, don't worry about your due dates, or needing to renew, we'll sort it all. There will be no fines either.

Our library team are still working behind the scenes to make sure online content is available for you to access, and to make sure you can still login. You can contact us via email or use facebook messenger if you need to contact us. The phones are not being manned.
During the Self-Isolation period to minimise the spread of COVID-19, write us a poem (or two, or several) about your experiences during this time. 

We'll publish them all on Facebook (unless content isn't suitable) and at the end of the self-isolation period, the poems Mayor Helen likes the most will win a prize.
The poem below "Good Teddy" was submitted by Dan Poe.

There's four prizes to be won - one for Seniors (65+), one for Adults (18-64), one for Youth (11-17) and one for Kids (up to age 10).
