Heritage month launch

Posted on 04 February 2020

February 2020 is Heritage month for Waipā District Libraries.

We celebrate Waipa's rich heritage with a number of events scheduled throughout the month in both library locations.

Opening Heritage month is a presentation by Historians Alan Hall and Sandra Metcalfe about the development of Te Awamutu through some of the town's heritage commercial buildings (the result of three years' research). A number of the buildings will feature in the Te Awamutu Central Heritage Walks. A third walk has been added due to their popularity.
