BUT WAIT - There's more...

On the 16th of October we got key stakeholders together from around the sector to talk about how we could make the vision articulated in our report a reality.  As a sector we were dreaming big, and this group dreamed even bigger.   You can read the minutes from that day here.  You can also hear about the vision that arose out of that day.


Here is a link to our workforce development discussion document and also the report to council from our One Library Working Group.
