Kids are loving Reading to Dogs! Here are some pics of Noddy having stories told to her, yesterday at Papanui Library. http://ow.ly/IYAxW Find out more about this superfun programme. http://ow.ly/IYAAT ^Donna

A customer suggested we need more of this in our displays – what do you think? I think the cookbook section might be a good place to start (or is that just me?) ^Lisa http://www.buzzfeed.com/alanwhite/i-basically-lost-it-at-animals-i-want-to-wrestle

12.51pm 22 February 2011. Our clocks stopped.

Our love goes out to people who lost whanau and friends, and suffer and grieve.

Our love to those struggling still.

Our love to everyone rebuilding, and good people busy revitalising their communities.
