CILIP South West Members Network would like to invite you to a ‘Library Safari’ visit on Thursday 3rd November. The safari will run between 10am and 4pm (exact timings to be confirmed).
Library Safaris are being arranged in the following locations, with other locations being explored for next year
• Weston Super Mare
This event is aimed at those new to library and information work, considering library careers or wanting to find out more about the information professions.
By the end of the day you will have:
* An improved understanding of library and information work, and the options available
* Awareness of qualifications and routes to professional registration
* Awareness of typical library roles and workplaces and the variety of different kinds of information work
The Chippenham safari will include visits to:
(Starting at) Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre. Details of how to get to the Centre can be found here: http://www.wshc.eu/visiting-the-centre/how-to-find-us.html. Free parking is available at the Centre.
Wiltshire College Learning Resources Centre
Chippenham Public Library.
Please note: The History Centre and College are very close. The group will walk to the Public Library, but this is about a 20 minute walk involving steep hills (uphill and downhill both ways). If anyone has accessibility issues please let us know in the order form and we'll ensure they can get between the venues.
Cost: free of charge.
Lunch is not provided but you will be walking through the town centre where there are plenty of opportunities to purchase food and drink.
