Free ukulele lessons are on offer at Mahurangi East Library on Saturday May 6 at 10.30am to mark New Zealand Music Month.
The all-ages lesson from local uke expert Dianne Morgan is the latest in the Library Friends committee’s monthly Living Library events, held on the first Saturday of each month. Recent Living Library mornings have focused on Kauri Care, Seaweek and the Lunar New Year.
The Friends will also be running its Winter Words poetry evenings, featuring the Whangarei Poetry Posse, on the last Wednesday of the month from 7pm, starting May 31 and running through to August.
Senior librarian Fleur Coleman says Mahurangi East Library is a little library, but it has a big heart, with a strong active community following for its events and activities, and anyone can become a Friend.
