Here are the Librarians working for Matamata-Piako District Libraries:

Josh - Library Assistantjosh

I joined the libraries after college, worked here for three years, then wandered off on a mystical quest into the land of Nod where I was taught how to skateboard by a Chinese man with a full back tattoo. I then returned to the libraries having gained much in the way of wisdom but having also lost some measure of my sanity. I like reading about English country houses, British sports cars and the New Zealand wilderness.

Articles like this: https://www.nzgeo.com/stories/beyond-the-desert-road/ are why I like the NZ Geo website, as it teaches me facts about the places I like to visit and the animals that I encounter in my travels. Here’s another good one: https://www.nzgeo.com/stories/whio/

You can get on to the NZ Geo website for free at any of our libraries, using our computers, or the free WiFi.  We've also got the NZ Geographic magazines in print in the libraries, too.
