Dare to Explore @ Central City Library

Kia Māia te Whai @ Ngā Whare Mātauranga o Tāmaki Makaurau

New Zealand has some truly beautiful birds and here is your chance to get to know them a little better. You can make your very own finger puppets to retell the story of how the Kiwi lost its wings, and then use our simple script to perform to your audience in the library or at home. You could also try using black cardboard and cellophane to make your own native stained glass bird, or design your own bird using felts, paper, and pencils.

Challenge Buster: This event will help you complete a Dare to Explore or Kia Māia te Whai challenge!

(Translation) The Birds:
- Draw, collage or design your own bird using different parts of our native birds. Don’t forget to give this new bird a name.
- Read, listen to, or watch a story that has bird in it. Retell this story by having a go at composing you own waiata, story or poem.

This session is aimed at children aged 5 to 13 years and their families, and we strongly recommend the support of a parent or other caregiver for younger chilren.

Please note that children under the age of 14 must be accompanied to the Central City Library by a parent or other caregiver.

Dare to Explore @ Central City Library and Kia Māia te Whai @ Ngā Whare Mātauranga o Tāmaki Makaurau

Children aged 5 to 13 years can sign up for Auckland Libraries’ free summer reading adventure online and in library branches from Monday 7 December.

Dare to Explore and Kia Māia te Whai are about reading every day (even if it’s just a little bit) and completing fun new challenges.

Come along to the library for special holiday events and activities, or to share what you’re reading, creating and discovering. When you finish at least four challenges, you’ll be invited to a celebration party at the end of the summer holidays!

Once you’ve signed up, pick up your activity book from your local library and you’re ready to go!

The countdown is on for Dare to Explore 2015... can you unlock the secret?
