To all library staff, and others throughout the country who have friends and family, in Christchurch. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your families amidst this time of devastation. Below is just three of the thousands of heartfelt tweets from libraries.

- Kia kaha Christchurch. May the thoughts of many bring warmth thru the long night, keep you safe until morning, & bring your loved ones home from @KowhaiAnne.
- Otautahi: nga whakaaro aroha me nga inoi atu ki a koutou katoa from @catatonichic.
