Keeping in touch winner Karen Atherton with her new iPod and Marketing Assistant Vicky HewardKeeping in touch with email winner

Congratulations to Karen Atherton, the winner of our ‘Keeping in touch with email’ competition, pictured here (on the left) with Marketing Assistant, Vicky Heward.

Karen moved to Christchurch two years ago with her husband from San Francisco. The couple wanted a major positive lifestyle change and a good library system was essential for any new residence. They haven’t been disappointed. Karen’s closest library is South Christchurch but she made a trip to Central Library to collect her prize of an iPod Shuffle and bag of library goodies.
