Libraries Board tour with new members

The Libraries Board had Vini Ciccarello and Andrew Luckhust-Smith appointed to it in February.  Ms Ciccarello is the former State MP for Norwood and the former mayor of Norwood (now part of the Norwood, Payneham & St Peters council).  She is also a former employee of the State Library.  Mr Luckhurst-Smith is a qualified lawyer and director at Angus Securities.  These two new Board members bring a wealth of diverse experience, which will complement that of the existing Board members.

 As is its practice the Board will embark on its annual country tour, however this year’s tour will be in April (26 & 27) rather than its usual springtime tour.  The Board will visit libraries in the Mallee, Riverland and Murraylands regions.  On Thursday we will be visiting:
  1. Murray Bridge
  2. Lameroo
  3. Pinnaroo
  4. Loxton
  5. Renmark
  6. Berri
And then on Friday we will visit:
  1. Barmera
  2. Waikerie
  3. Swan Reach
  4. Cambrai
  5. Mannum
As you can see this will be quite a busy couple of days.  Given the diversity of libraries that we will be visiting this will give all Board members a feel for the issues being faced by libraries across the State while also providing information about the specific issues faced in these councils.
