Writers love libraries. Where else can you browse shelves of lovely books to your heart’s content, sit quietly in a comfy chair and read whatever you want, ask questions which lovely librarians are only too happy to answer?
So I was very pleased indeed to have a request recently for some copies of The Wideawake Hat for Timaru District Library. Apart from some copies for people to borrow in the normal way from Timaru, Geraldine or Temuka libraries, a copy has been placed in the Aoraki Reference section (for books by local authors) and two copies in the Aoraki Stack – an archive of local publications. It is a very special feeling to have produced something which will be kept for posterity.
