image - library week 2009This week is Library Week, so we are celebrating just how amazing we are.

Here are some facts (some well known / others not so) that give you a small insight into just how much happens behind the scenes every day. There are a lot of people hard at work to make the library an amazing place to visit every day.

  • Our entire Library network issued 1,593,158 items between June 2008 and June 2009.
  • Dunedin Public Libraries holds all current NZ standards, all AS/NZS (Australian/NZ Standards), and all AS that are included in the NZS Catalogue. Other standards can be ordered via our interloan system. However, not all our standards are on the catalogue system, so if you are searching for a standard, check with Information Services before giving up!
  • Each time the Reed Gallery has an exhibition, the Bindery makes supports for the articles on display. Every support is individually designed and handmade to suit the specific requirements of any particular item, and will never be used again once the exhibition is finished
