Each year, 21 March is observed around the world as the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. The theme this year is "We all sit under the same stars". Because Race Relations Day falls on Good Friday, the official day of celebration will be Tuesday, 18 March.
What's on offer?
There will be activities and displays on at Wellington libraries for the whole week (17 to 20 March). A full schedule of events is available on our kids' Events page - we'll be making earth people, putting on performances and activities and much more!

Books that have been banned or challenged around the world will be on display at Johnsonville, Karori, Newtown, Kilbirnie and Central libraries. Children attending class visits will be involved in discussions about whether certain books should ever have been banned or restricted in the first place. The main events for the week are a programme of readings from banned or challenged books by well known children's book writers, illustrators and librarians, and a celebrity debate: "Not enough children's books are banned in New Zealand".
Programme details are available on our kids' Events page, along with short biographies of the authors, librarians, Members of Parliament and illustrators involved in the readings and debate.
While the library is closed, users can return books through the after-hours slot. The Friday story time session will be held at Karori Library at 10.30am. Reserved items can be collected from Cummings Park Library, Ottawa Road, Ngaio.
The Community Co-ordinator's office will be closed, but you can still contact her on 499 1825.
The library will reopen on Monday 3 March at 10am. We apologise for any inconvenience.
For further details please contact: Karl Gaskin or Jill Spackman on 479 2344.
