Takapuna Library research centre, 2009

Some public libraries maintain publicly accessible archives. Local historians (from left) Cecily Harper, Mary Bingham and June Taylor are poring over copies of the Northcote Athenaeum Meteor, an early 20th-century magazine published by the Northcote Athenaeum Society and held at the Takapuna Library. They were researching the history of girl guides and boy scouts on the North Shore.
