”A library outranks any other one thing a community can do to benefit its people.
It is a never failing spring in the desert.Andrew CarnegiePhilanthropist
South Shore Public Libraries is pleased to be hosting the 2019 Nova Scotia Library Association/Library Boards of Nova Scotia annual conference: Palaces For the People – Empowering Communities.
Whether your library is a grand historic edifice or a popup in the local strip mall it is, at its essence, a physical place. Reading, community building, sharing and existing, all of it happens in that space. Libraries across the province are reimagining their space not as a warehouse, but as the beating heart of the community.
Passionate about libraries? Join us at White Point Beach Resort for a weekend of professional development, social connections and fun at this year’s NSLA/LBANS Conference.
