NAG Public Libraries Forum Manchester
21st November 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pmFree
Working with partners for the benefit of your community
Join other public libraries delegates from across the UK to discuss the challenges and opportunities of working in partnership at The Studio in Manchester
NAG Forum events are informal discussion days with a range of lightning talks and longer papers with plenty of time for group discussion following each presentation.
Feedback from previous forum events has confirmed that the opportunity to network with other professionals from across the country is the most valued part of the day. The events provide a friendly, supportive atmosphere where people feel confident they can speak freely amongst their peers.
In times of budget cuts, we recognise how important it is to keep these events affordable to enable delegates from public libraries to attend. Therefore, the Forum will be offered at cost price, £35, for Members for a full day including hot buffet lunch. Non-members are asked to pay £50 but everyone is encouraged to consider joining and NAG membership for public libraries has been discounted to just £75 this year.
Discussions will include partnerships with the NHS, FE Libraries, commercial companies and more. Our speakers include Lesley Lowe (Crawley College) and Chloe French (West Sussex Library Service), Liam Dixon (Surrey Libraries) and Jamie Wright (CollectionHQ), Anita Phul (NHS Libraries), Helene Gorring (Health Education England) and Dionne Hood (Bradford Libraries).
Full programme now available from the link below.
Refunds are available up to 28 days before the event; after that it will depend upon the venue’s cancellation policies and whether NAG will be charged however we will endeavour to provide a partial refund if possible. It is also always free of charge to change the name on the ticket and to send a colleague in your place.
