Join us on 25 March 2021 for the first in a series of webinets from IFLA Library Buildings to inspire and stimulate ideas about new approaches to library design in challenging times.

Full details can be found on our Event webpage.

Our three speakers are:

Carolyn Robertson, Libraries and Information Manager at Christchurch City Council in New Zealand, who will present a scenario of maintaining and developing community library services against the background of New Zealand’s successful elimination approach to managing the pandemic;

Cathal McCauley, University Librarian, Maynooth University, Ireland who will focus on the significance of reinvigorating and redeveloping library services in a disrupted environment while at the same time managing fluid services to the academic community in a constantly-changing environment;

Ton van Vlimmeren, recently retired as Director from the Utrecht Public Library, who with a wealth of experience in European libraries and PICA Library Network, will reflect on the past and look forward to the future.

The webinet will be hosted by Janine Schmidt and Marian Morgan Bindon.
