Wellington City Libraries is turning 175 years old! This makes us the oldest library system in New Zealand – wow!
To celebrate our birthday, we’re holding a party at the Wellington Central Library on Saturday 21st November.
For the creative and crafty people out there, we have a couple of competitions that you can enter.
The colouring competition is for 5-8yr olds. New Zealand’s first public library was a small hut on the Wellington waterfront. Colour in the picture of the hut, fill in your details on the back, and drop it in to any Wellington City library to enter.
The design competition is for 9-13yr olds. We want you to draw your idea of the library of the future! What do you think Wellington City Libraries will look like 175 years from now (that’s the year 2190, by the way)? Draw your design on the front, fill in your details on the back, and drop it into to any Wellington City library to enter the competition.
The competitions close on 29th November, and the winners will be announced on 1st December.
