NSLA Conference 2016

Nova Scotia Library Association 2016 Annual Conference

September 23-25, 2016 | Pictou Lodge & Beach Resort

For more information, visit the conference website:

We, the Library Boards of Nova Scotia (LBANS) welcome you to the 2016 NSLA/LBANS Conference. May your time with us this weekend be a profitable one for the knowledge that you acquire and take back to your respective libraries, and for friendships that will be renewed as you attend the different events. We thank each and everyone for the valuable knowledge that you impart to others.

- 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.
