Children to enjoy stories of the Pacific
The languages of the Pacific Islands are coming to Ranui Library this month with the launch of the Tala Pasika storytime series for pre-schoolers.
Every fortnight on a Wednesday morning from October 14 the library will have a story read in a Pacific language.
Each session will see a different culture from throughout the Pacific represented through stories, legends, folklore and activities.
The programme follows a successful Samoan language week programme held across several libraries, including Ranui, earlier this year.
“We had a lot of positive feedback from the Samoan community but also from other people wanting their cultures to be featured,” says Waitakere Libraries multicultural services advisor Shivangi Pradhan.
A Pacific educator from the Auckland Museum will come in to the library for each storytime.
