Motueka Library: 1000 Books Before School (Tuesday 17th September 2019-Thursday 31st December 2020)

Reading aloud and talking to your kids are two of the best things you can do.

1000 Books Before School encourages families to spend quality time together, promotes pre-literacy and learning by having listened to 1000 or more books before the child starts school. Any child aged from birth to starting school can participate in this self-paced programme.

1000 Books Before School is a programme designed to encourage and support families to read aloud to their children from birth with the knowledge that reading aloud to children is a vital ingredient in building a child's foundation for successful learning.

1000 Books Before School is a collaboration between Tasman District Libraries and the Motueka Family Service Centre and is supported by the Motueka community.

Richmond Library: Community Quilt Project (Wednesday 17th June-Monday 14th September 2020)

We are so impressed and amazed by the success of our community effort under Level 4 Covid-19 lockdown.

We want to remember this time in a meaningful and lasting way with a community quilt. Simply stitch a word or image relating to your experience of Level 4 lockdown on to a piece of A4 sized fabric, leaving a 3cm border all the way around, and drop it off at your local library. We’ll stitch all the pieces together to make an amazing community quilt which will be exhibited across the Top of The South / Te Tau Ihu.

Any kind of stitching is welcome – embroidery, applique, random wild stitching – just go for gold!

Anyone of any age and any stitching ability can take part.

For more information visit our website: http://www.tasmanlibraries.govt.nz/about-us/events/featured-events/tdl-community-quilt-project/

Keep an eye out for stitching workshops and bees in your local library.

Takaka Library: Community Quilt Project (Wednesday 17th June-Monday 14th September 2020)

We are so impressed and amazed by the success of our community effort under Level 4 Covid-19 lockdown.

We want to remember this time in a meaningful and lasting way with a community quilt. Simply stitch a word or image relating to your experience of Level 4 lockdown on to a piece of A4 sized fabric, leaving a 3cm border all the way around, and drop it off at your local library. We’ll stitch all the pieces together to make an amazing community quilt which will be exhibited across the Top of The South / Te Tau Ihu.

Any kind of stitching is welcome – embroidery, applique, random wild stitching – just go for gold!

Anyone of any age and any stitching ability can take part.

For more information visit our website: http://www.tasmanlibraries.govt.nz/about-us/events/featured-events/tdl-community-quilt-project/

Keep an eye out for stitching workshops and bees in your local library.

Richmond Library: Chris Stuart – For Reasons of Their Own (Tuesday 21st July 2020)

Chris Stuart has worked in outback Australia with Aboriginal communities, in war zones, during disasters, disease outbreaks and famine and has witnessed the best and worst of humanity. As a result she has a head full of stories that need to be written.

The desire to become a writer began when she was caught in a bombing attack in Northern Sudan. One of her colleagues gave her a book to read while waiting for the all clear. The book was so absorbing and instrumental in distracting her from the danger outside that she realised how wonderful it was to be an author and have the power to transport the reader to another time and place. For Reasons of Their Own is Chris' debut novel.

Find out about the process of writing this intriguing crime novel and the world of DI Robbie Gray in our first author talk since Level 4 lockdown.

After Chris’s session, you are invited to join the Richmond Writing Group for an optional hour of discussion and fun writing exercises from 2.00pm-3.00pm.

Free. All welcome. Bookings not required.

Harp Meditation and Intuitive Development Retreat at Wangapeka (Friday 7th-Monday 10th August 2020)

A blissful, nurturing, heart opening and fun three day retreat with live harp music and deepening exercises to strengthen your relationship with your authentic self.
A journey of light, remembering and insight, embracing the parts of us that need us most. The sounds of the harp interwoven with words and intention will take you deeper into yourself, where you can safely explore while being held by the soothing sounds of the harp.

Deep healing results from the merging of Soul and Body and the deeper insights this encourages. Upliftment and heightened frequency resonance occur naturally. Letting go of the old becomes effortless.
During the retreat there will be harp meditations (in a warm room with a fireplace), intuition enhancing exercises (they are playful, fun and encourage your intuition to speak), reflection, creativity, sharing from our heart.
A popular retreat for men and women who want to expand into a deeper awareness of them-selves and improve their perception and connection with the world around them.

Magic happens...

​Accommodation, teacher's fees and superb food is included. All meals are catered for.
$444 or $422 for Wangapeka retreat members
