CILIP West Midlands are organising a one-day conference, Libraries – Building for the Future, held on Tuesday 9th February and sponsored by TOP-TEC. The event includes information about two exciting new libraries; The Library of Birmingham and the Worcester Library and History Centre, which will be the first fully integrated public and university library in Europe.
There are some great speakers, including library workers from different sectors as well as architects, and there will be opportunity for networking with other professionals, both in the library and architecture fields. The event will also include the AGMs for CILIP West Midlands, West Midlands Career Development Group, and the Public Libraries Group.
The conference is being held in Birmingham Theatre Library in central Birmingham (walking distance from New Street station).
It’s open to all – CILIP members and non-members; people local to the West Midlands region and those further afield. The cost for the day is just £17.25 for CILIP members, £34.50 for non- members, and the cost includes lunch and refreshments. You can read more about the day and get booking information from the programme.
It would be great to meet new people, so I hope to see you there! 🙂
EDIT: Unfortunately, this event has since been cancelled.
