Welcome to the PLSS

We are proud to champion the Public Library Skills Strategy 2017-2030, which encourages a new, more open and inclusive way of developing skills and professionalism in the public library workforce and one which recognises that ‘leadership’ happens at every level of the organisation.

"The library was never finished. It was never meant to be finished"
