I have represented the Ikaroa Region on National Council for the previous two years and am seeking re-election to this role.
There are challenging times ahead for all sectors of our profession and it is my belief that now, more than ever, we need a Council which is experienced and knowledgeable. I believe that I bring that experience to the region and also to Council. Having worked in both public and academic libraries, and in rural and urban settings I have a good understanding of the issues faced by our profession from a variety of perspectives.
I have really enjoyed getting out around the Region over my current term, and feel privileged to have been your representative. I have a heartfelt passion for the good that libraries do in our communities and the value that we all, as professionals, bring to our organisations.

Kimbolton Library visit – 27th May 2010
Join Ikaroa LIANZA for a visit to the historic Kimbolton Public Library.
Located in Edwards Street, the library operates from one of the oldest remaining buildings in Kimbolton, with the cottage gifted to the Kiwitea County Council Library Committee by Rev J F Mayo about 70 years ago. The Library was the focus of a problem-solving project for local school children in 2008. The group of eight Kimbolton school children won the prestigious title of being the best junior problem solvers in the world, having won the International Junior Community Problem Solving Challenge competition in the US for their work on the Library.
The Library will be open for us from 5.45pm for viewing and a presentation. Then, those that are keen can have a meal at Hansen’s Cafe in Kimbolton.
If you are interested in carpooling please let me know how many and where from and I’ll do my best to coordinate.
RSVP by Friday 21st May to firstname.lastname@example.org.
