We are pleased to announce our 2017 Library Technicians and Assistants Interest Group Conference on Monday, November 20. This year’s theme is Celebrating Libraries! We are currently seeking presenters.
The Library Technicians and Assistants Interest Group (LTAIG) holds an annual one-day conference every fall to highlight and promote libraries in the province and the library staff who work there. Join us for a fun and informative day of conversation and networking with your colleagues across the province and the country.
The conference will be held in the Community Room of the A.C. Hunter Children’s Library located on the first floor of the St John’s Arts and Culture Centre at the corner of Allandale Road and Prince Phillip Parkway. The conference is FREE to current NLLA members. Not a member? Visit our join/renew your membership page.
Please forward presentation suggestions or general conference questions to 2017 LTAIG Conference Convener Jennifer Budden.
Our conference planning committee has been working hard to put together an exciting program for our 2017 Annual Conference at the Suncor Energy Fluvarium. Program highlights include:
- Keynote speaker and local author, Trudy Morgan-Cole
- A pre-conference social at the Marjorie Mews Public Library
- 19 talented speakers from public, academic, and health libraries
- A post-conference dinner at Merlo’s Inferno!
Join us on Sunday, May 7, from 6:30-8:30 pm at the Marjorie Mews Library for the 2017 Annual Pre-Conference Social with refreshments and snacks. Julia Mayo, Branch Supervisor, and Kristina Walters, Library Assistant, will also tell us what’s happening at the Marjorie Mews library.
Libraries both big and small are integral parts of their communities. At Marjorie Mews Public Library we feel that we fill that role well because of the staff and the attitude we have. We believe that by having ownership of our “product” and having a positive attitude about our work, there is nothing we cannot achieve. It is our philosophy; if you are not having fun (at work) you are doing it wrong. We work hard to create positive partnerships within the community with businesses, schools and other community groups. Over the years we have steadily continued to push the limits of our space, our budget and our imaginations to bring in programs that appeal to our patrons and their families.
Kristina and Julia have been working with the Newfoundland and Labrador Public libraries for about nine years. They find great satisfaction in doing all kinds of library work, from answering reference questions, coordinating adult programs and basic computer classes to early literacy outreach and children’s story time.
Registration is now open for our 2017 Annual Conference: Survive & Thrive taking place on Monday, May 8 at the Suncor Energy Fluvarium. Please register online by May 1. Payments may be made the morning of the conference, or may be mailed to us.
