Event description

Description

CILIP Yorkshire and Humberside are pleased to invite you to a jam-packed Members' Day in (hopefully) sunny Scarborough! This year we have two presentations, both with an international flavour, plus two tours, of a public and HE library, and lunch will be provided. We do also have to have our AGM, but don't let that put you off!


Programme (timings are approximate):

11:00am – tour of Scarborough Library and Information Centre (max capacity: 20)

11:45pm – CILIP Y&H AGM

12:15pm - talk by Leanne Young about the Travelling Librarian award, and visiting US university libraries to find out about their distance learning initiatives

12:45pm – lunch (provided)

1:30pm – talk by Katherine Coussement about her work establishing a community library in Kerala, India

2:15pm – head up to Coventry University’s Scarborough campus (CILIP Y&H will provide transport for people coming on this tour, as the campus is roughly 20 minutes' walk from the public library)

2:30pm – tour of the newly established campus library with Librarian Katie Mann (max capacity: 20)

3:30pm – head back to central Scarborough, followed by optional ice cream / fish & chips / pub


Travel: Scarborough Central Library is about three minutes' walk from Scarborough Railway Station. The town centre is well served by buses, or the closest high-capacity car parks are the Palm Court multi-storey or the Brunswick multi-storey.


Registration: Please book via Eventbrite. There are three types of ticket to allow you to chose which parts of the event you want to attend - please select all tickets you require, then proceed to booking.


Notes:

CILIP members and non-members are welcome to attend any combination of the parts of this event, though only members can vote in the AGM.

If you wish to submit any items for the agenda of the AGM, or have any questions about joining the committee and/or running for a position, please email us by Monday 17th July - we'd be delighted to hear from you! This year we are particularly looking for anybody interested in the role of Candidate Support Officer, as our current CSO will be stepping down at the end of July.

Please also contact us in advance if you have any accessibility concerns, so we can check arrangements.

If you have any dietary requirements for lunch, please let us know during registration. If you register after 17th July, please be warned we may not be able to accommodate your requests, but we will do our best.
