I know that we were all really looking forward to a face-to-face conference this year but the sudden border closures are making it nearly impossible to plan for this to happen for an interstate conference.
Instead we are going to use the opportunity to work to develop stronger local hubs in your area. On that note, let me introduce you to 
The two-day program (7th-8th June) is still going to be packed full of both face to face and online opportunties to learn, share and encourage.
It's also free!
So start thinking about your local area. Who can you connect with? Who can you invite? How can you develop good network ties with other Christian School libraries somewhere near you?
More news to come...

I think we all missed joining fact-to-face at our conference this year. It really highlights what a valuable conference it is for so many of us. 

Thank you to all who attended our AGM. It was great to see your faces. It wasn't nearly as good as meeting together but I am still thankful for the opportunities that technology provides.

We have a couple of exciting opportunities to look forward to. 

1. Paul MacDonald has agreed to do a Virtual Book Talk for us so that we can all stay up-to-date with the publishing world. Please keep an eye out on our website for dates.

2. We have planned dates for Conference 2021: 7th-9th June.Really looking forward to seeing you all there next year.

3. We are each working on library policies to support the changes required in response to the pandemic. Thank you to those who have shared your policies already. This will go up on the website soon. If you are willing to share your library pandemic policy on our website please email me. Be sure to let me know if you want your name and/or the name of your school included.
