Our council has a vision: “To make Horowhenua the best rural lifestyle district in New Zealand” and they recognize that 21st century Libraries have a huge role to play in getting there. In just a few weeks stage 1 of Horowhenua's brand new library, culture and community centre, Te Takere, will open. This $7m project is the work of the Council and Horowhenua Library Trust in partnership with the Muaupoko Tribal Authority. It is the result of a community working together to achieve great things – not least of which is a huge amount of fundraising.
We are on the home straight now but could really use a hand. Imagine if all of my friends each gave $20 and each of them asked their friends to give $20 as well and so on. Imagine all the people throughout the globe who have connections back to Horowhenua. If this went viral we could cross the fundraising goal really fast!
Levin really is an awesome place and as a community we have done cool things together. The hockey turf, the events centre and the adventure playground are 3 big community projects - and Te Takere is the next.
If you would like to help us by donating please do - and please ask anyone you can think off who might like to help to.
