More Info →Book chain, transporting books to the new Palmerston North City Library

A human book chain was used to transport some of the books from the former Public Library to the new Library on the opposite side of The Square. Children and Army personnel helped to transport books. The purple cushion was made by Tessa Burt, a staff member, to carry the first book across into the new Library.
