On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Library Boards Association of Nova Scotia, welcome to our joint 2017 LBANS and NSLA Conference here at the beautiful Annapolis Basin Conference Centre. We trust that you will have a wonderful Conference and gain knowledge that will benefit you and your colleagues for years to come.It has been a pleasure to be involved with the “Libraries 150” theme this year and we know that you have all been inspired by the events taking place at your libraries. Well done everyone.Thank you Annapolis Valley Regional Library for hosting our conference this year. You and your team have done a wonderful job.

- Ruby McDorman, President Library Boards of Nova Scotia

Public libraries in Nova Scotia play an important role in delivering a wide range of lifelong learning materials and services. We know because Nova Scotians, just like you, make over 3 million visits to public libraries a year.

But we take public libraries for granted, that friend around the corner that is always there. The fact is that public libraries are supported by provincial, municipal, and community dollars. But the investment is well worth it. Public libraries employ over 800 professional staff in urban and rural parts of Nova Scotia. Public libraries are in 77 communities. There are also online libraries, mobile libraries, books by mail services, and satellite locations.

The Library Boards Association of Nova Scotia needs you, as friend and user of public libraries, to speak up and say Public Libraries are important to me, my family, and my community.
