Coming through the email inbox today was an email from Penny Carnaby to the NZ-Libs list informing us that she is stepping down as National Librarian and Chief Executive of the National Library.
I would just like to send out a thank you to Penny, as she has been a tireless advocate for libraries over her tenure as National Librarian. Not only has she been passionate about libraries, but she has also been forward thinking in driving the Digital Strategies of the National Library. I found my self nodding in agreement to a lot of her speeches, especially when Penny has discussed the Delete Generation.
I wish her the best in her future endeavours. I also wonder if she would be interested in blogging and if a cheeky invitation to the blogging community would be well received :-)
