Palmerston North City Library Local History Week, 1 – 10 March 2024

From 1-10 March the Palmerston North City Library is delighted to present Local History Week! This year they are inspired by whenua. The whakataukī (proverb), Whatungarongaro te tangata toitū te whenua, speaks to this theme in the permanence of whenua and the profound nature of connections we develop with the land.

With generous help from the city’s historians, researchers and heritage organisations, they present a week of history; in whenua, on whenua, of whenua, with whenua, and from whenua.
