Word of the Year isn't a Word!

Wednesday 23 December 2015

The Oxford dictionary word of the year, you will be surprised to learn, for the first time ever, isn't a word.

There are some great words in the runners up including Germany's youth word of the year... smombie. This is to describe someone who stares gormlessly at their smart phone for hours on end and is a cross between smart phone and zombie!

As we sign off for the year, we wish all our very loyal library supporters a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Best wishes from the library staff at Murchison, Takaka, Motueka and Richmond libraries and we look forward to seeing you again between Christmas and New Year or in 2016!
