LIANZA are excited to announce that planning is STILL underway for a conference aimed to support library staff who work with children and youth. The two-day event will be hosted at the National Library of New Zealand and is now delayed from November, 2020 to March 8-9, 2021.

The conference aims to offer inspiration from within and beyond the library sector and will focus on hands-on learning, offering diverse opportunities to experiment, interact and network with colleagues from around the country.   The aim of the planning group is that every attendee will leave with a rich selection of ideas, tools and resources to fill their kete o te wānanga, ready to use in their work.

The planning group includes: 

  • Cathryn Mitchell – Auckland Libraries
  • Glenys Bichan – SLANZA President and Cambridge High School Library
  • Penny Guy – Tauranga Library
  • Adrienne Hannan – Wellington City Libraries
  • Stephen Clothier – Wellington City Libraries
  • Stephnie Burton – Kapiti District Libraries
  • Nicki Sharpe – Nelson Public Libraries
  • Eryn Makinson – Dunedin Public Libraries

If you work with children and teens – this is a conference for you!
