As part of Heritage Month 2010, in association with the Wellington Region Heritage Promotion Council, a new display has been installed in the display case on the 2nd floor of Central.  Looking at the theme of the Environment, highlights include our copy of Sir Walter Buller’s A History of the Birds of New Zealand and Gideon Mantell’s (the “discoverer” of dinosaurs) paper on the exsistence of the Moa in NZ.  So if you’re passing by the 2nd floor, stop by some time to check out this new display.
