Libraries and Learning
Digital inclusion is intended to empower communities so they have the ability to access and use technology to increase their opportunities and improve their lives.

World War One - In Our Own Voice and our exhibition, World War One - A Contemporary Conversation, provide excellent opportunities for students to explore the War's impact on New Zealand.
When visiting the State Library of Victoria recently and enjoying the Mirror of the World exhibition, I was impressed by the magnificent, enormous Audubon book, Birds of America. But, even this splendid work of art had an oval stamp in green ink declaring MELBOURNE PUBLIC LIBRARY.
Rachel Van Riel, Director of Openingthebook recently presented a workshop in Dunedin on reader-centred practices, environments, and services.
