Motueka Library: I Spy … Reading Challenge! (Monday 2nd September-Thursday 31st October 2019)

I Spy … with my little eye … a fun reading challenge!

It’s that time of year, winter is drawing to a close, and now, just slightly, you’re starting to feel a little lacking in inspiration. You know what you need? What you need is a reading challenge!

This year, your library is inviting you to think about books differently, notice a little bit more than you usually would, get out your magnifying glass and play a game of I Spy …

We encourage you all - men, women, children, adults, and everyone in between - to grab an I Spy … participation card from Motueka, Murchison, Takaka or Richmond library and take on a special, sleuthing, detective challenge that will get you reading (and listening!) to books that might normally escape your notice.

Even better, there’s a mystery lucky-dip reward for everyone who completes their I Spy … participation card.

Don’t delay, grab your I Spy … participation card today!

Free. Everyone welcome to take part.

Terms and conditions apply.

Motueka Library: 1000 Books Before School (Tuesday 17th September 2019-Thursday 31st December 2020)

Reading aloud and talking to your kids are two of the best things you can do.

1000 Books Before School encourages families to spend quality time together, promotes pre-literacy and learning by having listened to 1000 or more books before the child starts school. Any child aged from birth to starting school can participate in this self-paced programme.

1000 Books Before School is a programme designed to encourage and support families to read aloud to their children from birth with the knowledge that reading aloud to children is a vital ingredient in building a child's foundation for successful learning.

1000 Books Before School is a collaboration between Tasman District Libraries and the Motueka Family Service Centre and is supported by the Motueka community.

Steve Guitar Gillies and Greg Copeland (Wednesday 23rd October 2019)

Greg Copeland is coming back to New Zealand!

He's is taking it to the roots with an up close and personal acoustic journey.

Greg pays his dues to the originals and forefathers of the Blues from deep down South, channeling the spirit into his own material and style.
You'll hear warm embraces with Sister Soul and a tip of the hat to Brother Funk.

„When I sing I want you to feel my hurt, my pain, my happiness and my sadness. I want to ask for forgiveness if I did something wrong and forgive people if they have done me wrong. All these things I try to do with my music.“

While growing up in Portsmouth, Virginia, Greg was and still is heavily influenced by artists such as James Brown, Wilson Pickett, Robert Johnson, Howlin´Wolf and many others.
These influences have helped Greg to develop his own unique style, based on Blues taking in Soul and Funk elements.
Greg performs across the globe and is an accomplished songwriter and produced several albums.

He brings with him his latest CD titled "Brown-eyed Handsome Man", released in March 2019.

On his side is good friend Steve 'Guitar' Gilles, playing the acoustic guitar and resonator slide as well as blues harp.
Steve has already been along on three other 'Blues all over NZ tours': in 2012 with Big Daddy Wilson, then a year later seasoning his chops with US Bluesman “Watermelon Slim” followed by a second NZ tour with Big Daddy Wilson in 2015. He has also been touring Australia in March 2016 with Big Daddy Wilson, clocking up miles, experiences, and audiences.

Greg and Steve hit the road this October and November for an amazing 27 gigs all over New Zealand.
Tickets available at the door at $ 25 on the night unless sold out prior.
Advance sales on eventfinda.co.nz

"A singer and a storyteller! That is what this man is.
With his soulful, blues voice he takes you on an 'Acoustic
Journey to the Blues'!“
Blues News Magazine
„A top notch singer with his own unique style!
Greg Copeland is for real!“
