Literary Trail

Early European settlers who came to New Zealand wanted to improve their lot so they turned to books to satisfy their thirst for knowledge. Nelson is home to the oldest library in New Zealand and our Literary Ramble celebrates this and some of the people who helped make books accessible for all in the past.
