Guided Tour of National Library New Zealand
Thursday September 19th 2013, Starting at 10.30am
Meeting in the Foyer
Corner of Molesworth Street and Aitken Street, Wellington.
If you would like to take a guided tour of National Library New Zealand, then this is your opportunity. This tour is suitable for both experienced and not so experienced genealogists. You may be surprised just what is held there.
The tour is approximately 1 hour duration. It will give a general overview of National Library NZ, with a focus on Genealogy and Family History. A moderate amount of walking and standing will be involved.
We recommend that the group takes the 9.00am train from Waikanae (9.05 Paraparaumu). It is a short walk to Molesworth St from Wellington Station (slightly uphill). You can use your Gold Card from 9.00am (return voyage by 3pm). Of course you can use private transport. A day Rover fare is $14.00 if you do not have a gold card.
After the tour you can stay and do some research. Pencil only is allowed in the library. Pencils are available. All bags will need to be left in lockers on site, free of charge. The café is located on the 1st floor, so you can stay and have lunch if you wish.
