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.

Happy first day of Spring! It's been rainy and chilly here in Wellington but we're hoping the sun will start shining again soon.
