This time last year the Sydney based ILN team were packing our bags to go to Singapore for IFLA WLIC2013.
It’s nearly time for the WLIC2014 in Lyon and our Hong Kong Country Coordinator Leo and US-based keen ILN supporter Bridgette have got a plan for an ILN meet up at the conference. So, if you’re going to be at IFLA this year, read on.
The meetup is on Wednesday August 20th at 6.15pm after the IFLA General Assembly meeting. Meet right outside of the Auditorium Lumiere and the plan is to then walk over to Rhone and visit some of the peniches, which are boat restaurants/pubs (there are a TON of them). Leo and Bridgette thought that’d be a nice way to explore the river a little bit and have a nice, informal meetup with other ILN people.
Keep track of any changes to the arrangements by following Bridgette on twitter @bridgettediann and ask her about the #ILNmeetup.
Obviously this is a great opportunity to meet up with other ILN participants and meet one of our Country Coordinators. However, you certainly don’t have to be an existing part of the ILN to join this meetup. Maybe you’ve heard about it and would like to know more? Perhaps you are on your own at IFLA and would like the chance to meet some other librarians in an informal setting? Whatever your reason for joining in, the more the merrier.
We loved catching up with ILN participants and a few of our Country Coordinators last year and are looking forward to photos and stories from this year’s meetup.
