Find out what's happening at the Te Awamutu and Cambridge libraries.
If you love reading books, sharing books, chatting to others about books and finding new books to read, come along to an enjoyable evening where you can share your favourite titles with other book lovers while enjoying light refreshments provided by the library.
An opportunity to share your knowledge of Te Awamutu's commercial buildings.
The focus of this year's public consultation will be Advance Cars (now Paper Plus), Clark & McMillan (now Strawbridges), Hodgson Motors (currently vacant), Holmes Garage (formerly Stuart Law), the Old National Bank (now Central Cafe) & TML (now Furniture Zone).
Following on from the Art Deco style of the 1920s, Te Awamutu experienced a boom in new and innovative building technologies in the 1930s-50s.
Glass, reinforced concrete and the concept that "form should follow function" are reflected in many of Te Awamutu's iconic buildings.
Following on from the successful heritage walks in 2020, this early evening walk led by Alan Hall around the Te Awamutu central business area will tell the stories behind many of the town's more interesting buildings.
This is a stand-alone event but those wanting to attend would also benefit from Alan's talk on 17 February on "Modernism - The New Look of Architecture in Te Awamutu's Commercial Buildings".
