We are due to have a Professional Development Day in 2020. Can you believe it's almost been two years since our successful "Let's Get Visible" day in 2018?!

Pulling together a day like this takes time and enthusiasm. While the deadline to nominate for the working group has passed, we still welcome your input.

If you would like more information or to contribute, please email FNQ Library & Information Services.

 2018 FNQ Librarians PD Day

This year's FNQ Librarian's PD Day was a great success. The day focused on making yourself and your library visible to your clients, with a lot of content based on using social media as a tool to achieve this. 

The speakers on the day were:
Juliet Marconi and Fiona Jensen, Cairns Hospital Library & Knowledge Centre
Lyndell Sellars, Cairns State High School Library
Amy Walduck, Pineapple Glam
Dr Michelle Dale, JCU
Bronwyn Mathiesen, JCU
Mandy Provic, Cairns Libraries
Amelia Benerfield, Tablelands Libraries
Mikki Rhoades, ARC Resource Centre

The local speakers were excellent, and we were very pleased to be able to showcase the work of Amy Walduck from Pineapple Glam, and Maddy Medlycott and Micheal Hawks with their transferable skills workshop "Librarians and Dragons".
