Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori - Māori Language Week this year will be September 9th-15th. The chosen theme for 2019 is again 'Kia Kaha te Reo Māori.’

We often talk about languages as if they are people – talking about wellbeing, language health, strength and revitalisation. So when we say ‘Kia Kaha te Reo Māori’ we’re saying  - ‘Let’s make the Māori language strong'.

Look out for our kupu o te rā (word of the day) and our display of handy resources for beginning you reo journey at all of our libraries.

Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori events at Mercury Bay Library:

All week: Explore the library with bite-size te reo Māori. A great way to help you learn and remember everyday words!

Toddler Time (10:30am, Wednesday 11th September) - Stories and crafts with special guest Frank Thorne.
