Happy Christmas from the LIHNN Groups


“It is a good event to meet a range of people in different roles and hear their ideas and opinions.”

“It was a really enjoyable day – the talk in the morning was interesting. And it’s always good to hear what new and innovative things are going on in the library world. Thanks all.”

“It was a really nice day and great to network with colleagues not seen frequently.”

Things People Said They Are Going To Do Differently In The Workplace As A Result Of Attending This Event

“We have arranged to hook up with Angela & Stephanie Snow to link in a number of oral history projects we are starting. The Gold Award Trophy is helping to leverage a paper that is going to the Board from the Charity Manager, who is trying to introduce a steering group for a broader art initiative in the Trust. Everyone involved in the project is really thrilled with the award.”

“We will be looking at getting some Lego, investigating a book courier service, thinking about how we could use oral histories in our Trust”

“book courier service could easily be implemented in our workplace and would be a nice way to get out and about and meet staff”
