Auckland Libraries whānau recently celebrated the launch of two children’s books that help fill a need for resources in languages other than English.

Oratia worked with the Libraries team led by Anne-Marie Shepherd (Publishing Partnerships Lead) to prepare the books for use in libraries across Auckland.

Written by Māori librarian Teri Ta’ala, Māmā e hiakai ana mātou! tells the delightful story of three kids who are hungry and can’t work out what to eat, until their super mum steps in to dish up a delicious meal. Veronica Ligaliga, Senior Librarian Pacific Content Development Specialist, translated the work into Gaganā Samoa as Tinā ua mātou fia’a’ai!
