New Zealand Book Awards 2020
The Library has been bathed in the light of 130 suns made by children from St Marys, Ross, Kaniere and Hokitika Primary Schools, inspired by two books on the Awards shortlist: Abigail and the Birth of the Sun by Matthew Cunningham and How Māui Slowed the Sun retold by Donovan Bixley. Youth Librarian, Krystel Woodcock has been visiting schools to read to and work with the children to celebrate the New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults.
