Welcome to Two Thousand and Great

Yes, no excuse, I have not updated this since returning from annual leave. For those of you who didn't know, I went to Peru for nearly 3 weeks and have not got over it! I did a blog while I was away:
Again, I will try and update this blog from week to week.
News for 2008
The State Library of NSW staff will be undergoing Library 2.0 training which is then hoped to roll out to the public libraries. I hope that something will be announced in the second half of this year. I will make this opportunity available to as many people as possible.
How are you going with the Mental Health CD ROM Worksheet? Council HR are now reviewing this and considering rolling this program out to the rest of BMCC.
The Library is hosting some wonderful events in the first quarter of 2008.
On the Run is a State Library exhibition. On The Run will be at: Katoomba Library December 19, until January 19, and Springwood Library from January 21until February 7 2008. An official launch will be held at Springwood Library on Monday January 21, 2008 at 11.00am. The exhibition is free and open during normal library hours.
Library Lovers Day is February 14 - Valentines Day. We will be giving out bookmarks and encouraging people to put them in books they love. Blind Dates with books will also be arranged. I am looking for people to write the Lonely Hearts ads for the books...get your pens to work!
Harmony Day will be held on March 20 this year. The Library will be running a Living Library at the Katoomba Civic Centre. Have a look at Lismore Library's website to learn more about the Living Library concept:
Plus there are loads of School Holiday Activities coming up...
