This week we are celebrating the signing of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. The New Zealand version of UNICEF's "For Every Child" publication has just been published. This bilingual title is called "For Each and Every Child - He Taonga Tonu te Tamariki" and we will have a special reading of it by the Nola Harvey outside the Sylvia Ashton-Warner Library on Tuesday. Nola is the Faculty of Education's UNESCO ASP Network co-ordinator.
The New Zealand version on the book is being launched with readings in libraries all over the country this week. Help us make the record for the most public readings of a book in any given week by coming along, and sharing our endorsement of children's rights. The event is accompanied by a special display on Level 2 of the library, in the Junior Collections area.
Reading: Tuesday 22 November, 12.30pm
Outside the Sylvia Ashton-Warner Library if fine, inside the library if wet.
