Our Blog

Since the relaunch of our library website nearly a year ago most of online efforts and content have been directed there and not to this blog.

We have also expanded our involvement with other online platforms such as our Facebook page, Twitter and Flickr accounts during this time.

As a result we have decided to cease posting to this blog and focus our efforts instead on our website and other online presences.

Previous content posted here will remain as a record of past events, news etc.

Warbirds over Wanaka 2010

February 10, 2011 at 1:20 pm | Posted in DVD, DVD Documentary, Reviews | Leave a comment

Warbirds over Wanaka Airshow 2010 – with bombs exploding, soldiers running around with rifles and aircraft above you engaging in an aerial dogfight, you would think you were in a war zone. But no, you would be in little old New Zealand.

It may not be in the top ten on many a girl’s list – but it is for me.

Again the Wanaka Airshow has outdone itself in 2010. It has death defying aerobatics, military displays, aerial dogfights and historic military machinery.

Aircraft on show included: Mitsubishi Zero, Harvard’s, La-9’s, Yak 3, the Aussies new F/A-18’s and my all time favourite fighter aircraft the Spitfire, I just love the deep, throaty sound of it.

If you have a love for military aircraft, whether you are a male or female, you will love this DVD – especially with surround sound.

Saucy Reading – The Wonder of Sex @ Dunedin City Library

Originally uploaded by Dunedin Public Libraries

A sneak preview from the Fortune Theatre.

It’s hard to think of a duo less likely to be helpful as sex counselors than the pompous Desmond Olivier Dingle and his toupee-wearing sidekick Raymond Box.

But counsel they do, attempting to re-enact legendary moments from the coital history of humankind and taking you, the audience, on a probing investigation into the fascinating world of SEX!

Afterwards, a chance to enjoy some light refreshments and an opportunity to mix with the cast

Thursday 10 Feb 12.30pm,

Changes coming this week to www.dunedinlibraries.com

September 27, 2010 at 11:06 am | Posted in Library_News, Website | 2 Comments

During this week we hope to launch our new-look library website.

The overall site has been redesigned to improve access, offer new content, and aims to meet our customers needs. We hope you like it.

At this stage it’s anticipated we’ll make the change over during the afternoon of Wednesday 29th September.

We’d love to hear your feedback when the new site is live, so do let us know what you think!

Please note that at present the web address that displays in your browser is http://www.dunedinlibraries.com and that this will change over to http://www.dunedinlibraries.govt.nz when our new website launches.

Rest assured both addresses will continue to work after the change over and still point you to the new website.
