The name comes from the Maori word for a gift or donation. The
programme was written by Katipo Communicaitons for the
Horowhenua Library Trust, in response to a need for a library
programme that would run at branch libraries connected to the
central library by ordinary phone lines. See

It's a small district on the west coast of the North Island of New
Zealand, wedged between the Tararua mountains and the Tasman
sea. It's about an hour's drive north of Wellington city, and has
population of 30,000.
