Motueka Library: 1000 Books Before School (Thursday 25th October 2018-Tuesday 31st December 2019)

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.

Join us at Richmond Library for an hour and a half of crafting. It’s a great opportunity to finish a project, or start a new one, and spend some enjoyable time with other crafters.

Bring along your craft project – knitting, hand sewing, mending, crochet, drawing, scrap-booking, or whatever half-finished, almost-started project you like – and work on it with other crafters at the library.

Free, but you need to bring all your own materials and craft supplies.

Every Wednesday afternoon.

Bring your lunch, or grab something from the Library Café.

All welcome. Bookings not required.

Come and join the Appleby community for a day of fun at the Appleby School Country Fair. As always, there will be something for the whole family to enjoy - young and old. There is no shortage of entertainment lined up, with music, bouncy castles, face painting and countless other activities to participate in. Our ever-popular silent auction will be jam packed with wonderful goodies. Don't forget to arrive early, as our farmers market, baking and flower stalls do sell out FAST!!! And when you’re done with all the fun there will be plenty of hot food, snacks and of course amazing coffee to wash it all down with.

Richmond Library: Freshwater Fish of Tasman (Monday 9th September 2019)

This month we’re focusing on the environment at Richmond Library. We’ve organised a range of informative talks which are designed to broaden your understanding and awareness of environmental issues.

In this talk, Tasman District Council’s Senior Environmental Resource Scientist, Trevor James, talks about freshwater fish and the latest discoveries of the cryptic creatures of our waterways.

Forest and Bird write that, “Most New Zealanders know about our whitebait, and our eels, but we actually have more than 50 species of native freshwater fish. They are secretive and fascinating, but sadly they are also in serious trouble.” Find out more about them with Trevor James.

Trevor’s talk is free and everyone is welcome.
