    Barbara Band

    CILIP President


    Barbara is CILIP President for 2014 and Head of Library and Resources at The Emmbrook School, a state secondary school in Wokingham. She has been a school librarian for over 22 years, prior to which she obtained a Business Studies degree and worked in project management. She is a member of the CILIP School Libraries Group and Youth Libraries Group and, until recently, was Vice Chair of the SLG London and south-east. In addition to maintaining contact with both the Thames Valley and Hampshire branches, she belongs to the School Library Association and is on the committee of the Central and East Berkshire branch. She sees collaborative working, sharing good practice and supporting each other as essential for the future of the profession. Barbara is a keen advocate for librarians and was involved in the organisation of a successful Mass Lobby in support of School Libraries. She is pro-active, believe vehemently in the value of libraries and, when someone tells me that something cannot be done, the first thing I ask is “why” and then try to find a way to do it. She intends to to bring this passion and tenacity to my role as CILIP President.
