2:35 Temporary outdoor library
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.

Justin Gregory talks to project manager Marieke Numan and asks her why books, why here?
