Neighbours Day Aotearoa 25/26 March 2017

Public Libraries of New Zealand is a partner in Neighbours Day Aotearoa. New Zealand's biggest celebration of neighbourliness.

Turning streets into neighbourhoods - Atawhaingia te Pa harakeke

25 - 26 March 2017

Wherever you are in NZ, put 26 - 27 March 2017 in your diary as a day to celebrate where you live and get to know your neighbours better. Just one act of neighbourliness can make a difference to the street you live in.

Building better relationships on our streets can transform whole neighbourhoods into healthy, fun and vibrant places to live.

Neighbours Day Aotearoa is something all New Zealanders can get involved in.

Remember you don’t have to wait - everyday can be a neighbours day.
