  • What is Kotuku? 

Julia asked Nicki Sharpe from Nelson Public Libraries about the Sign Language Story Time sessions they run at the library. 

Can you tell us a bit about your background and how you came to be working in libraries?

By Immediate Past President Te Paea Taiuru

Tena koutou katoa, 

LIANZA has a role in advocacy to support libraries in asserting the crucial role they play in communities.  We write submissions to funding/governing organisations and are sometimes able to support these in person.

21 this month!  Yes, #Open17 will be my 21st LIANZA Conference in a row and I cannot wait :D. 

LIANZA is bidding to bring the IFLA congress to New Zealand, and to support our bid NZ Tourism funded our attendance at this year’s IFLA congress.
