Libraries Connected Day Seminar

Wednesday, 2 December, 2020 - 09:00 to 16:30

This has been a tumultuous year for us all and as the Covid-19 pandemic continues, significant uncertainty will remain for the foreseeable future. Yet despite these circumstances, throughout lockdown and now during reopening, libraries have done an amazing job to continue to deliver a range of services, tailored to the needs of their communities. 

Like all publicly funded services, libraries face enormous challenges over the next few years as they seek to react to the rapidly evolving situation and sustain their offer to their communities.

Libraries are an essential part of the local economic, social and cultural recovery from Coronavirus and this seminar aims to help library leaders to demonstrate the value they bring, and to advocate for their work.

The Libraries Connected day seminar will bring together around 100 public library leaders from across the country for the first time since libraries were forced to close their doors.

This is an important opportunity for our members to reconnect with each other and together to explore ways to meet the immediate challenges they face.

Delegates will hear from a range of speakers discussing how libraries can evidence and communicate their impact to secure support and funding.

In the Sponsors Showcase, they will also see the latest developments from some of the leading library suppliers who have generously sponsored the event.

The seminar is aimed at public library leaders in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and bookings will initially be restricted to one person per library service to allow more services to attend.
