The month of May is filled with NZ Music Month gigs in the Library.
The library is excited to announce our line-up of heritage events which includes author talks, a children’s campfire Storytime and book launch for the Nelson STEM writer’s Past/Present.
We have an exciting author talk lined up for March courtesy of The Friends of the Library.
As you settle back into the year we are excited to introduce our new line-up of programmes and events for 2018. This includes computer classes, Community Chat and the addition of two new Small Time and Story Time sessions.
We have had an amazing response from the community to our call for gifts of toys. These donated gifts are for the children of our resettled families. Wonderful elves from the Library have been wrapping furiously in time for Santa to deliver these gifts over Christmas. A thank you to Jillian and Katie, two of our fabulous librarians who organised this initiative and finally a big thank you to those who gave - your generosity knows no bounds!
The library has a great line-up of summer reading for everyone. In addition to our Children’s Summer Reading Programme we are excited to introduce the first Nelson Public Libraries Young Adult Reading Challenge. We hope you will have heaps of fun and maybe discover some new authors along the way.
Annually, as a gesture of good will, we allow members to have a slightly longer borrowing period over the Christmas/New Year break.
November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and we are inviting writers aged 13 – 18 to take part with us.
The Page & Blackmore Readers and Writers programme has a great line-up this year, over two weekends during the Nelson Arts Festival, which runs 11-27 October.
