Piha Library News May 2013

Working Bee this Sunday 5th May- Half an hour or half a day- any help appreciated!

There is a huge amount of work involved in the upkeep of the library. This autumn we are asking the community to lend a hand to help keep our library in good shape. The working bee will begin at 1pm and continue till 4pm when we will bring out the afternoon tea to say thank you to everyone who has helped out. Tasks that need to be done include cleaning the library interior, dusting, window washing, vegetation maintenance and scrubbing the library deck. Rain or shine, we will still be able to get stuck into many of these tasks. If you can help in any way we would love to hear from you by e-mail at pihacommunitylibrary@gmail.com.

If every adult member gave us one hour of their time this year, this would nearly total 1000 volunteer hours- just think what we can achieve if everyone does a little bit to help!

User Survey Now Closed- Congratulations to our Prize Winner

Many thanks to everyone who participated in our User Survey. The feedback we have received will help us manage the library collection, identify areas where we can improve the service we provide to the community, plan for the future and apply for funding.

Congratulations to our competition winner, Celia Ryan, who has won free DVD hire for one month.
