Polio and Me and is aimed at helping persuade polio recluses to come forward and receive treatment. There could be as many as 10,000 people in NZ who could develop Post Polio Syndrome (the late-in-life aftermath of polio) and yet only about 1000-1500 have been located and are receiving help. Where are the others?

Polio and Me also tells Merv's own polio story after contracting the disease during the 1948-49 epidemic.

Second Floor, Central Library.
