Janet Peters, Chair of WHELF, is pictured with the Welsh Minister for Culture and Sport, John Griffiths AM, at the opening of the Trade Exhibition at
the CILIP Cymru Wales Annual Conference on Thursday 16th May.
Mr Griffiths said that it was his “chief task” to continue the Welsh Government’s support and protection for libraries in Wales, even given the current financially challenging times.
Speaking to over 120 delegates at the Conference in Cardiff, Mr Griffiths applauded the theme of the conference. By working together in partnership and collaboration, libraries can find new ways to “do more with less” and to strengthen and enrich their services.
Janet Peters gave a presentation on WHELF’s strategy for the future.
