Bye Benny-Benson Russell and I would like to thank all the lovely caring people who sent flowers, plants and cards after the sad loss of our beautiful dog with a big heart and the most wonderful nature, Benny-Benson, on April 10. He was so well thought of he even got a postcard from friends who went to Hong Kong, and a poem from a friend, Joy, at Woolworths. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him. What a great community we live in. Rae Hinton Onetangi Library location What a treasure a free library is for a community. In the past there may have been a good argument for the library being within the Artworks complex as some sort of anchor tenant to attract the numbers to the area so that other tenants like the gallery could survive. There is now a growing amount of cultural capital in this precinct. Do we as a small community want to locate such a treasured asset so that tourists, commuters and those who live in Oneroa enjoy the greatest access? I can only express my disappointment and dismay that the local board members were unanimous in their agreement on this location and wonder if that really reflects the wishes of the wider community. Perhaps people have been more distracted by the conversation over its size, design and whether it is combined with the service centre. It would be great thing to see children owning the library and not just being brought there by their parents as seems to be currently the case at its present location. Paul Healy Rocky Bay Editor s note: After lengthy public consultation a higher proportion of Waiheke residents chose for the Service Centre (council offices) to remain in Ostend and for the new library to be built in Oneroa. Despite this, the former Auckland City Council chose to amalgamate the two projects in Oneroa due to budget constraints. The local board is working to reverse that decision and fulfil the community s original wishes. Help the Sallies The Salvation Army Annual Red Shield appeal needs collectors at the supermarket from May 5 to 7. Can you help?
