Christine Busby

Christine Busby, Library Manager at Te Puke on how she found her way into libraries

Christine got her start in libraries as a volunteer at Whakatane Library and after deciding a career in library and information management was for her, she moved to Wellington to study towards her Masters in Library and Information Studies at Victoria University of Wellington while working at the Parliamentary Library. 

The LIANZA Council election for 2018 was held to appoint three regional councillors and the LIANZA President-Elect.

Wow, it's February already! We hope you've all been coping with the heatwave that most of New Zealand seems to be experiencing. We're trying to enjoy it while it lasts because before you know it, it will be cold and rainy again! 

Welcome to the first monthly newsletter of 2018 - we hope you all had an amazing holiday break!  
 


#WhereISpentMyHoliday competition

Last year we ran a holiday decorating competition called #LIANZABling.

We had libraries from all over the country participate so we thought we would run the competition again in 2017/2018.
