Library Citations

In 2001 Dunedin Public Libraries instituted an award to acknowledge the valuable contribution of writers, artists, researchers, sponsors, and others to the Library.

The Library Citation has then been awarded annually to a Dunedin resident who has made a long and outstanding contribution to the library collections, services, or programmes.
