Motueka, Murchison, Richmond and Takaka Libraries: Read Around The World

Wednesday 7th June-Friday 4th August 2017

Never read a book by an author from Tanzania? Wonder what a book by a Japanese author is like? Curious about the writing style of a person from Bolivia?

Now is your chance to read books by authors from all over the world!

Take part in Tasman District Libraries’ Read Around the World Challenge and go in the draw to win fantastic prizes!

All you have to do is read one book by four authors from four different countries, between 7 June and 4 August.

Pick up your Read Around the World passport from Motueka, Murchison, Takaka or Richmond Library, fill in the names of the books, their authors and the countries they’re from, collect a completion stamp for each book from your local librarian, and drop your completed passport off at your library by Friday 4 August.

You can find some helpful lists of authors from all over the world on our website:

Enter the Read Around the World draw and be in to win generous prizes donated by Richmond House of Travel, Motueka House of Travel, Paper Plus, Volume, Take Note and the Library Café (Richmond).
