Kia ora and welcome to our blog, as Christchurch City Libraries enters the Blogsphere. OK, we know – what took us so long?!
Now we’re up and running, our mission is to keep you in touch with our world, sharing views, opinions and ideas on reading, listening and watching. Our world is the world of information, so our team spend their working (and private) lives exploring books, movies, magazines, music, the web and more.
We’ll be sharing our experiences of our world through an on-going digest of reviews, and we want your comments on the things we’ve got to say. This is a two-way street, so we want to know what you think about what we do. After all, the library is your library.
To launch the blog, we’re covering the Auckland Writers & Readers Festival – Thursday 24 May to Sunday 27 May 2007. Our team on the ground in Auckland – Donna and Robyn – will be posting news and reviews about the festival several times a day, sharing their thoughts on the flavours of the festival and many of the writers taking part. For those of us who can’t get to Auckland, we hope it’ll be the next best thing.
