WW100 centenary commemorations
Plans are already underway for the World War I centenary commemorations, which will run from 2014-2018.
A news page gives up to date information about the progress of projects, whilst the New Zealand At War Timeline provides an interactive way for people to find out more about New Zealand's involvement in the war.
Watch this blog for more information about Auckland Libraries' involvement with the WW100 centenary commemorations, including projects involving WW1 material drawn from the libraries' heritage collections.
