The cost of attending includes a buffet lunch.

The booking form allows individuals to reserve places and to state how an invoice should be submitted and/or how to request a purchase order. A Debit Card payment facility will be provided shortly and those paying in this way will still be able to reserve a place now.

Forty places have been set aside for staff of West Midlands Public Library Authorities with the rest being available for individuals in the region and for library staff and others from beyond the region, both nationally and internationally.
