SLA Lancs November 2018

November Meeting 2018

What a great day we had at the November branch meeting with guest speaker Lucas Maxwell, School Librarian of the Year 2017. So many fantastic ideas with something for everyone to take away from the day and put to use in their own libraries. For myself I am already on to our I.T. department to see what I can set up to utilise Lucas’ innovative ideas for Skype and Twitter within the library.

The day kicked off with presentations to Rosalind Buckland our past Chair for all her hard work in ensuring the progressive success of the Lancashire branch and also to our own Emma Suffield in celebration of her winning School Librarian of The year 2018.

Grateful thanks to Lucas for coming all this way to speak to us, such an inspiration, and of course to Gerry Bruen our fabulous host at Lytham LSA.

It was also lovely to meet and to welcome a few new faces at the meet, who are of course always very welcome

Watch out for further details of our AGM on March 20th 2019.
