In an attempt to lessen its impact on the tourist industry a group of New Zealand school children try to clean up the rubbish left on Mount Everest.

Climbing parties have been going there continually for 45 years and while walking up one mountain they’ve inadvertently created another one, of rubbish.

Please note the location of the screening has now moved to the first floor not the fourth floor.

Be sure to admire its beauty when you come in next. This is the winner of the flag design competition of Turn-Off-TV Week 2005.

So much work has gone into turning it into a reality.

Below 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.

Here’s some bullet points from Fridays list… yes we didn’t post Thursdays to the blog – you need to visit our website for these!

  • Blueskin Bay Library is in the process of getting a new building! You can drive out there to see the proposed model on display.
  • It’s a hard world out there. If you work on the Bookbus you are issued with long johns, a polyprop top and a jacket – Bookbus Librarians work in extreme conditions.
  • The Children’s Storytime in the City Library is extremely popular, and is attended on average by 70 people each session.

    • An average of 700 new people join our Library network every month.
    • Looking for some financial help to achieve your dreams? Visit our website, and you will find Fundview and Breakout databases. These provide grant and funding information for community groups and scholarships for school, polytechnic or travel; through to funding for sports and arts schemes; personal development funds; and academic and non-academic funding for individuals.
    • The gold used for decorating the books that come through the Bindery doesn’t have any gold in it! The colour is in fact a pigment.
