  • Joining the Dots: Lancashire Libraries Conference focusing on managing people. 14th - 15th October.  Do you manage people?  Do you have to make decisions? Are you looking for inspiration or new ideas?  If you are, then don't miss out on the Lancashire Libraries Joining the Dots conference in Lancaster on 14 and 15 October.  Come and hear Paul McGee (SUMO Guy) deliver our opening keynote, then attend your choice of workshops, a gala dinner and a chance to win an iPad Air.  Day two includes visits to some of Lancashire's libraries and the closing keynote will be delivered by Wayne Hemingway MBE.  You'll also have the opportunity to visit our industry exhibition - all this, including accommodation and meals for £249.00!
