If a librarian was the’ boss of education’ what do you think they would do first?

If a librarian was the’ boss of education’ what do you think would they do first?
LIANZA has an opportunity to join a nationwide conversation on the future of education in Aotearoa New Zealand.
Minister of Education, Chris Hipkins has invited LIANZA to attend the Education Conversation Kōrero Mātauranga Summit on May 4-5 in Christchurch.

This is our chance to shine the light on the essential role of libraries and to have a say on the future of New Zealand education, for the next 30 years or more.
We would like to take the voices of LIANZA members to this conversation ....but need your help. Your first step is to share with us your thoughts, examples and suggestions.
1. Examples of how your library service demonstrates its support for learning within the community you work (school, kura, university, public, business, community, health, police, research, tertiary, prison).
2. Suggestions for how libraries could be utilized more effectively to provide support for life-long learning to all New Zealanders.
3. What you consider to be the best-kept secret libraries and librarians should be sharing about how they support learning and learners?

Please share your thoughts via this form by Friday May 4
Then take one more step to make sure librarians are even more visible in this important conversation!

Share your ideas directly with the Minister of Education by answering the five questions in the below survey by May 31

Responses to these five questions will be shared with participants from across education at the summits in May.

Make sure you record in the survey that ‘libraries’ is your connection to education. 

So join the conversation, spread the word and post publicly on Facebook and Twitter #EdConvo18.
Thank you for helping make the vital, vibrant voice of LIANZA heard in this important conversation!
