LMS formal launch @ Mitcham

Last night Mitcham Library hosted the formal launch of the "One Card" project.  (Thanks to all Mitcham staff for rearranging the library to fit us all in!)

Speeches from key State-wide partners, the Libraries Board (Chair James Bruce), the LGA (President Mayor Kym McHugh) and the Minister for the Arts (the Honourable John Hill) along with our host the Mayor of the City of Mitcham  (Michael Picton) gave us an outline of the project.  

It was a great opportunity to demonstrate and reaffirm the strength of the successful, decades long partnership between all councils in the State, their peak agency the LGA and the sector's cooperation and interaction with successive State governments.  The value of the current 10 year Memorandum of Agreement between the Minister and the LGA is demonstrated in what we're achieving together.

The launch included the screening of a great new video (that has been put together to promote ‘one card’ and libraries in general). It’s going to be used in a viral campaign in coming weeks.

It has been created by Jon Bentick with input from the Marketing Committee. Tomas Alves of Salisbury cut together the final version and added some great special effects. A real team effort!  Jon doesn't want me to load it to the Blog as it becomes a bit small and grainy. He has asked that I steer you to the links below to view and / or download it.
