ALIA ARL event: Creating Impact in Library Spaces and End of Year Celebration

We hope you can join the ALIA ARL Committee for our final event of 2016.


We are pleased to offer an exciting panel with a range of perspectives on designing for, and engaging through, high impact library spaces. There will be an option to tour the recently refurbished UWA Reid Library collaborative zone prior to the panel discussion. We’ll also be celebrating a successful year for the ALIA ARL Committee over Christmas drinks and nibbles.

Great Library Quiz 2016

Do you enjoy proving how many random factoids you know? Do you like supporting
great causes?

This quiz is the end of year event for ALIAWest and is also supported by the State Library. Funds raised will be split between the Kay Poustie Scholarship and the Sharr Award Fund. It will be a great opportunity to catch up with friends in the profession and make new ones. Better yet, there will be prizes to be won. 

Get a table together, bring some food and beer/wine/soft drinks and put your thinking caps on. 

May the best and brightest team win!
