A network for new and aspiring library professionals
The fab Darren Flynn is once again putting together another School Library Camp. It’s taking place on Saturday 11th July at MMU. If you’ve never been to a Library camp before, we highly recommend going along to this one! They are informal and energizing, a forum for discussion and networking. And it’s free. Darren explains it best: School Librarycamp is a user generated unconference for people interested in school library services. At a librarycamp the participants lead the agenda – in fact, there isn’t an agenda until people make suggestions for what they’d like to talk about at the start of the day. It’s free to attend and there are no keynotes speakers. It’s open to anyone with an interest in developing school library services whether you work, volunteer, teach, use, or are a parent/guardian of a user or not. Please bring a packed lunch or use one of a number of eateries are nearby. As at previous Library Camps, donations of baked goods for the group to share are most welcome (and particularly skilled bakers may be rewarded with a prize!) The event is free to all, supported by Manchester Metropolitan University, though donations to Book Aid International (www.bookaid.org/) will be welcomed on the day. Any questions?
