Matariki at Hamilton City Libraries – Hillcrest

09/07/2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am


Join us for a journey through the stars at Hamilton City Libraries. We’re in your neighbourhood and bringing you activities for tamariki every week. Learn about the seven stars of Matariki as celebrated in the Waikato, over the span of seven weeks at each of the six branches of the Hamilton City Libraries and Te Whare o Te Ata Fairfield Chartwell Community House. From stargazing, water colour painting to making manu tukutuku (traditional kites), we’ve got something for you.

Collect a booklet from your local library, visit each venue to collect a star sticker, and be in to win at every activity. A final prize draw of a Kaupapa Board game will be held at our whaanau celebration, Matariki in the City at Central Library on the 16th July.

This week’s star – Ururangi
Activities at Hillcrest Library
