This year Dunedin Public Libraries – Kā Kete Wānaka o Ōtepoti is celebrating the start of the Māori New Year with Puaka on Sunday 12th July, then Matariki from Monday 13th – Monday 20th July.
Puaka Matariki is a time for us to reflect on life, the physical world, remember the past and our hopes for the future.
Join us daily on our website and Facebook page as we examine a different star in the Matariki cluster and what significance it has for us in our work in the library.
