Dunedin Public Library
Dunedin could become the first city in New Zealand - and just the fifth in the world - to be named a Unesco city of literature.
A power outage has affected library services throughout Otago during the past two days.
Plan for the future of Dunedin Public Library will have to go back to the drawing board, after the announcement yesterday the former chief post office in the Exchange had been sold for a hotel development.
While some may have written off the Dunedin Public Library as a bit beige and musty, the city's top fashion designers know it is a haven of inspiration and intrigue.
