Our hotel wifi was totally inadequate. The place was fully booked and it appears the system just can’t cope with that. Luckily the Dunedin Public Library wasn’t far from our hotel and has excellent free internet access. You book for 30 minutes, and if there’s no-one waiting you are continually offered an extra five minutes – this happened four times for me.
The library building is comparatively new and replaced an older Carnegie building. (Sigh, I have a very soft spot for Carnegie Libraries having benefitted from them in my youth.) I was struck by the amazing variety of artwork inside. They even have a pamphlet of the Library Art Trail. It all made me long for the time when Christchurch will have a new Central Library. At least work on the site has started and it should be completed sometime next year.
“Dunedin library made me jealous.
I hope our building folk are zealous.”
