George Gair Reading Room Opening

The new George Gair Reading Room, situated in the North Auckland Research area of Takapuna Library, was opened on what would have been the late George Gair’s 91st birthday. His widow Fay formally opened the room after moving tributes to George, long-time MP and mayor of North Shore, from Helen Gillespie, chair of the North Shore Libraries Foundation; Geoff Chamberlin, previous manager of North Shore Libraries; and Marilyn Waring, Professor of Public Policy at AUT. She supervised George Gair as he completed his Masters degree in his eighties, and endorsed the comments of his three children Warwick, Joanne and Linda, who spoke of his lifelong interest in learning, and his dedication to the North Shore.
