  2. NaumaihaeremaiDedication to those lostOptions for recovery - Rangi Faith Options for Recovery for these eels - below the blackened & curling edges of the bridge’s shadow they’ve finally lost track of that sweet scent in this simmering depression of mud - the streamlined skins splitting, the fins cracking in the heat from the river stones & the gills closing Thank you for your support

  3. Christchurch Girls’ High School, September 2010

  4. Earthquake disaster • Complacency - too still • February 22nd, a jolt, a shake, a 6.3 quake • Buildings roll, crumble, contents spill • Liquefaction: undulating sludge greys Christchurch parks, tears roads and seeps through buildings • Damage overload, accident overload, text overload • Rescue service overload • Traffic gridlocks: 30 minute journey becomes 4 hours

  5. Experiences • Amy, 17, Ilam Honestly... I thought the world was ending. I was home alone and our house looked like it had been thrown across a continent. I walked down my house and it just kept getting worse. • Jean, 84, Sumner Through my window the cliffs disintegrate. Clouds of yellow dust pour towards me. Rocks, big like houses, crash down. My house rocks and pulls around me. Unbearable noise. My children where are you, please be safe. Drawers open, bookcases empty. A clock falls- eerily chimes. Pantry empties. My children are safe amidst death, injury, destruction.

  6. Impact - local library, was open........

  7. School librariesunsecured resources

  8. Timeframe: no school tomorrow • Waiting • Personal belongings ‘missing’ at work • Lost routines, unable to work offsite • 3 weeks or longer before schools open or move • Staff meetings offsite • Delays, engineers, buildings stickered, MOE sign off?

A holiday ? • Adjustment • Learning alternatives • Students migrate to schools around New Zealand • Establish online learning via school web-pages • Temporary enrolment at Correspondence school • Many students affected by NCEA requirements • And/or trauma of quake experiences (staff too)

  10. School still closedDislocation, frustration, uncertainty • Communication problems: lost phone numbers, school email • Resources unavailable – ChCh, National, school libraries • Focus on online sources, eBooks • Building damage, Liquefaction damage • no library server • Re-establish librarian contact: post a quake damage survey to listserv

  18. Where’s my book? • Suppliers closed, damaged • Orders/mail- lost • Time/travel delays with road damage • No we don’t want any more books on appro thanks • Business carries on around NZ , but Christchurch? • Christchurch and National Libraries offer support
