LIANZA is pleased to offer a time and space for librarians and library staff to connect in a peer-to-peer network. This network aims to provide support from within the profession for anyone engaging with older people in your community. We invite you to jump online on the last Wednesday of every second month and to bring your ideas and questions to share with colleagues around the country. From working to become dementia friendly to providing library services that respond to the needs of a growing older population as the Boomers and Gen X continue towards retirement and beyond. Similarly to the widely successful LIANZA CYS Network, we will need you to help identify topics, suggest speakers and share your ideas and successes. Where will this take us? Let’s try it and see what happens!
The first network meeting for 2022 will be in March and then every two months.
An exciting schedule is coming together and if you have any suggestions about topics or speakers please get in touch email@example.com
