Librarians in conversation at a PD workshop

Realising our potential – 2019 Rural Libraries Queensland (RLQ) and Small Libraries Workshop will be held at State Library of Queensland from Tuesday 30 April to Thursday 2 May 2019, with an optional bus tour to two public libraries on Friday 3 May 2019.

The workshop is designed for RLQ libraries and small branch libraries operating in an Independent library service. The program will focus on building participant’s skills and capabilities, as well as providing information and program/project ideas related to the four objectives from Realising our potential – A vision for Queensland public libraries

  • Realising our potential – Recognising the diversity of Queensland public libraries as they progress in their journeys toward becoming fully realised 21st century libraries. Becoming active players in Queensland communities by investing in citizen wellbeing for long-term prosperity. A state-wide and cohesive network.
  • Extending our reach – Influencing beyond the library by creating new pathways to connect and advocate to stakeholders and all levels of government.
  • Deeply local outcomes – Deeply local approaches to outcomes for Queensland communities. Providing access to information; supporting learning, community wellbeing and recreation activities. An inclusive place to access the past, present and future
  • Future focused workforce – Responsive and diverse services shaped and inspired by skilled staff that strives to innovate.
