Heritage month

Posted on 28 January 2022

We invite you to take the time to share your memories and images of Waipā's past in this year's Heritage Month.

Discover what gems the library holds through the launch of the new Local History page on our website. This project is a work in progress, with records being added regularly. Patrons or visitors to the page are more than welcome to share their memories and thoughts.

Images from the collection will be shared on Facebook each weekday for patrons and whanau to view, share and identify each other or share their memories of the images or events pictured.

We are also inviting patrons to hunt through their own photos to find any images pre 1970s which they would be happy to share. Patrons who submit items will go into the draw to win a KoboLibra2 (eReader) package valued at over $350.

If you are a Club and are interested in having your Club history recorded, our Club Oral History Project is underway. More information is available here.

Take a walk through some of Waipā's historic older building with our virtual Heritage Home Tours (click here).

Children are invited to test their research skills and learn a little more about Waipā's past for our Digital Scavenger Hunt! Two prizes are available to be won.

More online events may be added during the month, and will be listed on the website.
