With the cuts to library staff in Auckland the future of libraries is in the media again. This morning there was a very good discussion on Radio NZ around this.
“Victoria University professor of library and information management Anne Goulding and Laurinda Thomas, a past president of LIANZA and a team leader at Wellington Libraries, join Wallace to discuss the future of public lending libraries.”
Laurinda and Anne were very patient with Wallace who seemed surprised that people still like to use libraries. *sigh*
Laurinda has done an excellent job recently in advocating for libraries and if you have missed her TEDX Wellington talk you should take the time to watch.
