Temporary outdoor library

From Arts on Sunday, 2:33 pm on 21 April 2013

Think of Auckland's Waterfront and books aren't the first things that spring to mind. But a little shipping container on Te Wero Island has been turned into a temporary outdoor library, and passersby are pouring in and then poring over the tomes. Books still seem like an odd fit, though, in an area more associated with bars, restaurants and rugby world cup launches. Justin Gregory talks to project manager Marieke Numan and asks her why books, why here?
