Time: 12:10am to 1:00pm
Cost: Free event. You don't need to book.

Interested in researching an important building in your life
Librarians Fiona Gray and Hannah Benbow will provide an introduction to using the Library’s collections to research New Zealand buildings, architects and architecture. This talk is a great place to start if you’re interested in researching an important building in your life!

Topics covered will include, finding building plans and images of buildings, looking for published material on architecture and architects, finding out about the owners of buildings and land, and key collections held at the Library.

While the talk will focus on resources held at the Library, they will also discuss other places to look and share stories behind some of their favourite buildings.

About the speakers
Fiona Gray and Hannah Benbow are both librarians at the Alexander Turnbull Library. They co-authored the Library’s Architecture Research Guide.

borrow a christmas tree

Jimmy from Wilton

Kia ora all.
our son is keen to get a bigger christmas tree but we are not going to buy one in the foreseeable future.

i’m thinking some one might go out of wellington for xmas and might lend us their one until the festivities end where we’ll pack it up and bring it back.

we’d be greatfull for some thing not too big, 1metre is ideal.

kind regards
jimmy ,ataiir & malik.
