If you came into the library on Wednesday 1 March, you could have been forgiven for thinking you'd taken the DeLorean back to the 1980s. Staff were dressed up to celebrate the opening of the exhibition 'Rewind to the 80's'.
The exhibition was a collaboration between Libraries Horowhenua and MAVtech, the Museum of Audio and Visual Technology (Foxton). It was a nostalgic flashback to the technology of the 1980s, an important decade full of momentum and transformation, with a new millennium on the horizon. Much of the technology we enjoy today stems from innovations from this time.
MAVtech scoured their archives to find some fantastic examples... there's even a space helmet television!
