Christchurch’s incredible new central library, Tūranga, is opening soon, and we want kids and their schools to start getting involved now. We’re looking for names for Tūranga’s intergalactic heroes, the Bookbots.

Vote below for your favourite names for each Bookbot and go in the draw to win some galactic prizes!


  • One school will win a programmable interactive robot with training from PB Tech (to the value of $400). 
  • One classroom will win a class visit to Imagination Station. 
  • Six kids will each win a Promate Bluetooth speaker from Spark and some Bookbot wall decals for their room.

What’s a Bookbot?

Bookbots are from Planet Biblio and travel the universe helping to set up libraries. When Tūranga opens, you will be able to download the Bookbots app and help them fix their ship so they can return to their planet.

But before the Bookbots arrive at Tūranga, they need Earth names – and that’s where you come in.
