UCOL Hub - Visit

Well, the evening was quite mild when a bunch of enthusiastic librarians from the Ikaroa region got together at UCOL's Hub. The evening began with pleasant chatting over a glass of wine and a nibble followed by a presentation and tour of the Hub by Library Manager Doreen Young, and Liaison and Information Services Librarians Sharon Ritchie and Dianne McConnell.

It was a fascinating presentation and the Hub looks just marvelous. Without further ado, here are some photos:
