115 posters are on display at the Poster Session in the Exhibition Hall. Together they present a myriad of information for visitors, ranging from a library focusing solely on marine science to one hosting a Harry Potter Festival.
Walking between the crowded alleys, one would be happily inundated with paraphernalia and friendly smiles from representatives eager to share their work and materials presented on the boards. Some posters were informal whilst others were more in-depth.
“I just had an interesting discussion on social media with the people from the Public Libraries of Singapore! I think the poster session is a good avenue for us to carry out discussions with the editors of the posters.” —Mr Etienne Mackiewicz, Deputy Director of the municipal library of Lyon
“The poster session is an interesting idea because you get to see what different people in different libraries are doing all at once. It’s like having a wide spectrum of information before you.”—Mr Bjørn Christiansen, Norwegian Union of General and Municipal Employees
“The poster session is a good platform for showing others from around the world what our work is about, especially through photographs and short captions. After all, pictures speak a lot more than words!”—Ms Thinley Choden, READ Bhutan
“The poster session looks excellent and it seems very informative!”—Kate Cushon, University of Regina (Canada)
