An invitation is extended to all staff at libraries that are part of the Nationwide Outsourcing Contract. Baker & Taylor/James Bennett, are the supplier of library materials and services to New Zealand Public Libraries in this contract. They have put together an exciting scholarship opportunity that recognises the importance of continuing professional development.
The Board of Review has taken the extraordinary step of instating an interim restriction order for access to Into The River by Ted Dawe. An 'interim restriction order' has never been issued for a book before and seems disproportionate to the risk while the Board considers a rating review.
We are hoping to be a group that will get together in person about two to three times a year but use the groups page to keep in touch, maybe share articles, blogs, readings or thoughts on events or notifying about professional development activities in the region.
Please contact Jenny McIvor Jenny.McIvor@waikatodhb.health.nz or Kathryn Parsons firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The John Harris Award is awarded in recognition of notable published work, which represents a contribution to New Zealand librarianship.

Ada Fache was a stalwart of the library profession. She commenced work as an assistant at Dunedin Public Library in 1937. Except for two years as Librarian at Rangiora Public Library during the war, the remainder of her career was spent at Dunedin culminating in her appointment as City Librarian in 1960 -(only the second woman to hold this position in a metropolitan library). Miss Fache was one of the first group in 1946 to pass the General Training Certificate (later known as the NZLA Certificate, which then became the NZ Library Studies Certificate).
