Romance blossoms while reminiscences flow – DORA and Library to go

Looks like a spring romance is developing with Library to Go again sighted  in the company of celebrity DORA Mobile Digital Learning Centre. Abandoning their usual rendezvous point at Sumner for bustling Papanui High School,  they shared a common love of everything digital at the Positive Aging Expo.


Equitable computer access and education were promoted, while the nostalgic pored over digitised photographs, maps and plans of Christchurch’s heritage. The adventurous explored iPads and e-book readers, and a great day out was had by all.

DORA was blown away by scooping the top award in the Internet Access & Digital Skills category at the 2012 Australia and New Zealand Internet Awards (ANZIAs), held in Australia last year. For those of you who have not met DORA before she supports equitable computer access and education. Funding support from InternetNZ, 2020 Communications Trust has converted DORA into a hi-tech mobile learning centre to support her Stepping Up classes and Computers in Homes programmes in Christchurch. Since the quakes, venues at schools have been limited, and transport often unreliable – DORA takes her digital learning to any venue.

Watch out you never know where this happy couple may turn up next.
