    I was enrolled for the Wanaka Course. Can I now be enrolled for the Wellington Day 1 & 2. Thank you

    Kia ora Ally,

    A pity that there was insufficient demand for the course to go ahead. Unfortunately the Wellington course is already fully subscribed. We (the Alexander Turnbull Library Outreach Services) are taking names for a waiting list however, as if we get enough people, we will consider adding a second course earlier than the end of the year, when the next one would be due.

    To confirm your place on this list, please email atloutreach@dia.govt.nz
    If you have any other questions or comments, please email the same address, or call Lynette on 04 462 3977

    Kind regards
