On Thursday, a couple of us attended a meeting with a number of staff from public libraries from all around South Australia. The first part of the morning was a presentation by Inga Lunden, Director of the Stockholm Public Library. It was a really inspiring talk, outlining the coming changes to their library service and their amazing library website, that in addition to the traditional searching for items in their collection and on-line databases, also publishes reviews from readers and integrated content from the Internet. Amazing!
In the afternoon, a number of new and innovative services by public libraries around South Australia were also highlighted, through the awarding of the Crawford Award. Read more about the nominations.
Reading these nominations, makes you realise how innovative public libraries are today. Who knows what kind of services you will see here at the City of Tea Tree Gully Library service in the future!
