Awa Pukapuka open for reading

Reading gives us a place to go when we have to stay where we are.

On Monday, 12 April 2021 the first books were loaded into the new Awa Pukapuka near the footbridge. Anja and Theo Geelen have done a superb job with this new Little Free Library. They’ve also been given plenty of support and help by the community who have helped lay concrete, put the library in place and contributed books.

Congratulations to all!

The library is now open, although there are a few finishing touches yet to come, including artwork.

That means that an official launch hasn’t yet been scheduled, but there will be one.

There are a few guidelines:

Please note that books need to be in reasonable order. We also reserve the right to discard books if they don’t attract an interest, are not ‘moving’, or deemed unsuitable. This is a LITTLE library and we don’t have much storage capacity.

Games, puzzles (complete), DVDs, and magazines less than a year old, are also welcome.

Please use your own sound judgement when you drop off books to make sure we don’t become a ‘dumping ground’…

We are looking forward to growing Awa Pukapuka as a community project for all to enjoy. Many thanks.
