The Cut of your Jib: Embracing Culture in Our Libraries

“Progress is a Tide. If we stand still we will surely be drowned. To stay on the crest, we have to keep moving” – Harold Mayfield

Suncor Energy Fluvarium on 5 Nagle’s Place, St. John’s.

The theme of this year’s conference, Embracing Culture in our Libraries, will showcase the unique cultural character in our libraries’ collections, public services, research, and daily activities, and consider the idea of progress in relation to our province’s culture, traditions, and individuality.

CALL FOR PHOTOS! We are requesting photos of your collections, libraries, displays, and anything that embodies the idea of progress or culture in your library. Please include the following information: the library name and an explanation of how this year’s theme is captured. Photos can be forwarded to the Chair of the programming committee, Amanda Tiller. Print photos can also be mailed to the NLLA. Deadline for submission: May 1, 2013
