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.

2017 is certainly disappearing at a rapid pace! Here's what we've been keeping busy with: 

We asked Tauranga Hospital Library Librarian Raewyn Adams a few questions about her library journey

A challenge we face as a member association is quantifying what each individual member gets from being part of a national network. The best response is provided by our members, who are willing to share their highs, lows, and in-betweens.

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.
This month we've been busy helping with a ton of conference requests, preparing the annual report, completing our annual audit and of course, Joanna, along with Louise and Paula has been in Poland!
