“I received the fundamentals of my education in school, but that was not enough. My real education, the superstructure, the details, the true architecture, I got out of the public library. For an impoverished child whose family could not afford to buy books, the library was the open door to wonder and achievement, and I can never be sufficiently grateful that I had the wit to charge through that door and make the most of it." ~ Isaac Asimov, I.

🌞🌞You really get the feeling that summer is just waiting in the wings once daylight saving starts!! It snuck up on me this year - it's THIS WEEKEND!! 😲 So, don't forget to TURN YOUR CLOCKS FORWARD 1 HOUR at bedtime on SATURDAY, SEPT 23 (or 2am SUNDAY, SEPT 24) - or else you'll be an hour late for work on Monday - and that would be very uncool ;) #Wanganui #Whanganui #OurBeautifulPlace #DaylightSaving
