Library and Information Week stars on ABC
Orange City Library began Australian Library and Information Week with a live broadcast by ABC Central West Radio. Morning Show host Janice McGilchrist set up residence at the Homework Help Desk and interviewed Central West Libraries Manager and ALIA President, Jan Richards on the valuable role libraries play in our communities, Technical Services Librarian Ros Dorsman about Internet and email classes, Reading and Writing Coordinator Jasmine Vidler about how to write a book review, Local Studies Librarian Peter Douglass on the local studies collection and popularity of family history research and Orange City Librarian Elizabeth Barry discussed Storytime. It was a fantastic opportunity to highlight Central West Libraries services and talk about this year's theme: Libraries – your passport to discovery. Patrons visiting the Library were curious to see what went on behind the scenes of an on-air radio program and many received ABC stickers and magazines. It was also a learning experience for the Library team to be radio “stars” for a little while. Pictured is Morning Show host Janice McGilchrist interviewing Jan Richards.
