Every year during Library Week libraries all over the country read the same story at the same time. It’s called NZ’s Biggest Storytime. The
book this year is Itiiti’s Gift by Melanie Drewery, illustrated by local artist/author Fifi Colston. If you live in Karori, Khandallah or Tawa then come along to hear the story during storytime on Wednesday 12 August, 10.30am. Or check the book out at a library branch near you. It’s available in Te Reo Maori too: Ko te koha a Itiiti.

Nightvisionz Cosmodome at the Central Library
Hey guys! This week the Central Library’s Young Adult area will be transformed into a planetarium as it hosts the NightVisionz Cosmodome as part of Wellington City Libraries’ International Year of Astronomy and Matariki celebrations. Using a digital audio visual show to simulate the stars you will be able to literally step into a journey through the night sky and learn about Matariki and other constellations with astronomer Ron Fisher.
The Cosmodome is a great experience and will be open between 4–8pm from Tuesday 9 to Friday 12 June and 10am–4pm on Saturday 13 June. Bring a gold coin donation to get in.
Sessions are on the half hour – just turn up (please allow a little extra time as the number of people allowed in the dome during each session is limited and there may be a short wait). See you there!
