Te Takere, our local library, is much more than a library. It is the Horowhenua Cultural and Event Centre, and hosts a regularly changing range of exhibitions. And for the next few weeks my quilt club have a range of quilts hanging in the exhibition space. I am a regular library user, just can’t cope without a book or two to read, so popped in on Friday to see the quilts. There were several being exhibited from my Sew Wot buddies, I discovered.

These are just some highlights from the exhibition. Our club had a roster of ladies happy to sit and stitch and answer any questions the public may have. They had both taken along some hand stitching to do.

As I mentioned before, the library building is so much more than a library, although that is the part I mostly use. Te Takere also offers an AA Site for driver and vehicle registration, an I-Site Information desk, a Genealogy and local history centre, and the Libretto Café, where you can stop for coffee and a snack. Yes, I can vouch for the café – sometimes you just need to sit and enjoy a nice coffee, don’t you!
