Wiki Wednesday is a community Wikipedia-editing group. Anyone can edit Wikipedia, so we want to improve Whanganui’s visibility, and encourage a new crop of editors. Writers, editors, students, photographers, and fans of NZ history are all welcome.
For those new to editing Wiki there are tutorials, handouts, and help from more experienced editors. Use the library computers or bring your own and use the library wifi.
