Duffy Theatre

We were lucky enough to see the Duffy Theatre troop perform this afternoon.  The children loved it and as a result they have all taken home forms to fill out to get a Library Card from our own Otorohanga Public Library.  We are so excited and maybe we'll even go for a trip down there to see what it's like.  Some of us have been there already and some have yet to find the treasure that awaits when you borrow a book from the public library.

Duffy's Book Bus Adventure.
Mr Barrier sets out to shut down the library service since it makes no money. However, the show's hero Duffy and his librarian friends Awhina and Tiaki pull out all the stops to ensure that libraries remain free and available for their community.

The story reaches beyond school halls thanks to a partnership between Duffy Books and Public Libraries of New Zealand. Every child who sees the theatre will be given a card which is stamped whenever they visit their local library. Once they collect five stamps they receive a free book to keep, thanks to Duffy Books in Homes and Scholastic.
