Books Alive Special Events

Posted on 26 July 2021

LIANZA (Library and Information Association of New Zealand) and the New Zealand Book Awards Trust are bringing together another year of Books Alive online events and virtual storytimes.

Waipā District Libraries have been chosen again to host a Books Alive Meet the Finalists event and two Virtual Storytimes.

Egg & Spoon, an illustrated cookbook, is a finalist in the Elsie Locke Award for Non-Fiction. The Books Alive event will be held live on Zoom. Support our event through your participation! We want to engage all our Waipā tamariki who love to cook and they could win a copy of the book! For more information click here.

Hound the Detective and This is where I stand are finalists in the Picture Book Award. These will be published on Facebook as virtual storytimes on Friday 30 July and Monday 2 August respectively.
