A book is a garden carried in the pocket

But what if you can´t read the book?

This week is Adult Learners Week and to celebrate, we would like to invite you all to book for and attend Adult Literacy Tamaki Auckland Inc´s fundraiser, happening on Wednesday 19th September.

A special screening of the inspiring film, “The Sapphires” at the Lido Cinema in Epsom,with drinks and nibbles at 5.45pm and the movie starting promptly at 6.15pm. Tickets for the night cost only $25. Please book by calling Clare on (09) 570 4140 or emailing her at clare@adultliteracy.org.nz. NB: There are no door sales as Adult Literacy need to know how many people are coming in advance for catering purposes so make their lives easier by booking now.

If you can´t make it, please consider donating some moolah instead to ensure that people who may not be so fortunate can be offered this life-changer of an opportunity: to learn to read and write

We stumbled across this beautiful quote and leave you with it, as well as a picture of one of our favourite libraries.

It is not true we have only one life to love, if we can read, we can live as many lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish
