LIANZA has been offeringa time and space for children and youth services librarians and library staff to connect in a peer-to-peer network since late 2020. This network aims to provide support from within the profession for anyone engaging with children, youth, parents and whanau. We invite you to jump online every second Tuesday of the month and to bring your ideas and questions to share with CYS colleagues around the country. From working in partnership with early childhood centres and schools, class visits, engaging teens, holiday programmes, summer reading, use of te reo Māori and sign language in programming there lots to discuss. We have had some marvellous presentations and discussions - let the good work continue.

Reading for Pleasure: what has your library been doing to support reading for pleasure over the summer? What has been 'successful' and what will you tweak or change next time ? Has this summer been different, has your library been quieter than usual and how has your programming responded ? Come and share your summer experiences with your colleagues.
We are seeking more topics – so please send your ideas to email@example.com
