I attended the Switch 2017 conference for the NSW Public Libraries Association at Penrith. We had some great speakers and a lot of enthusiasm. The key focus is seeing the library as “community glue” and an enabler of community learning. Community libraries do a lot, but need more state government funding. Having once worked for the State Library of NSW, it was a great way to reconnect with some familiar faces!
Above is a picture of my local library – the Concord Library in Wellbank Street Concord.
