Libraries of Sanctuary

Wednesday 12th February 2020 6.00pm- 7.45pm.

CILIP International Library & Information Group (ILIG) extends a warm welcome to our next Informal on Wednesday, 12th February 6:00pm to 7:45pm at CILIP HQ, 7 Ridgmount Street, London WC1E 7AE

Attendance is FREE but we kindly request that you book in advance for catering purposes (light nibbles/wine).

This talk will look at the current initiative to develop public libraries as Libraries of Sanctuary in the UK, based on the pioneering work by Thimblemill Library in Sandwell (the UK’s first LoS).

John Vincent has worked in the public sector since the 1960s, primarily for Hertfordshire, Lambeth and Enfield public library services. In 1997, he was invited to become part of the team that produced the UK’s first review of public libraries and social exclusion (from which The Network, which he now coordinates, originated). He also co-developed the “Welcome To Your Library” project 2003-2007, and is now writing a resource pack to support libraries wishing to become Libraries of Sanctuary.

ILIG Informals are not lectures; they are informal, early evening social gatherings followed by a short talk on a theme of international interest plus plenty of time for questions and networking. They are open to all and absolutely free. Light refreshments are served which is why we ask you to let ILIG know you are coming by booking
