Have you heard about the ASU’s Library Liaison Network?
If not, 2019 is a great time to acquaint yourself! The Library Liaison Network is an active group of members who meet on a regular basis to discuss all aspects of work in local authorities’ libraries. Meetings are held regularly at the ASU offices.
The Library Liaison Network is part of the ASU’s commitment to provide workplace information, services and individual support to members.
You’re all invited to our first meeting of 2019 which will feature:
- Guest speakers from the Libraries Change Lives campaign will give ASU members a briefing of this campaign which aims to start the conversation about the value of public libraries and celebrate the essential services they deliver every day. In late 2018, Libraries Change Lives approached the ASU for endorsement of their campaign. Following a briefing from the campaign’s organisers, ASU members at the Network meeting will decide.
- Occupational Health and Safety brief by the ASU’s OHS Organiser Mick van Beek. This will include the use of communal head sets and electromagnetic check in bins
- Statewide library updates: Hear from members across the state and share the latest happenings in your library
- Special tour of Victorian Trades Hall Council restoration works at 4pm. This is a special RSVP only event, and a must do for any ASU member who loves labour history or building heritage. Early in 2018 work commenced on site at Trades Hall for the Living Heritage Project. With the expert assistance of Architects and heritage consultants Lovell Chen, VTHC is restoring the building to bring it back to life. Attend the tour with the builders and architects and witness some of the beautiful discoveries of our Victorian labour movement’s history.
DATE: Tuesday 12 February
TIME: 2.30pm – 4.30pm Trades Hall tour to commence at 4pm (leaving ASU office at 3.50pm).
VENUE: ASU Office, 116 Queensberry Street, Carlton South
Note members attending the Trades Hall tour must wear closed toe shoes as it is a building site.
