Yankalilla Launch

Yankalilla decided to have a "go live" launch / celebration last Friday, the day after they went live.  Members of the school, council and community attended the event, along with a number of PLS staff.

We heard from a number of speakers and Shirley Thompson the library CLA took us on a tour of their Enterprise site, showing people how easy it was to use, as well as showing the links off to the local newspapers and pages which assist readers in choosing suitable material.  Shirley was the prime designer of the site so she was the prefect person to take us on the tour.

And Shirley was the star of the day as the caterer as well.  We were informed that she'd stayed up half the night to prepare the delightful morning tea which kept the crowd lingering for some time.  Below are a couple of photos from the morning tea, but there are other photos of the event on the library's Facebook site.

The cake was cut by volunteer Shirley Whittlesea who has covered all the books in the library's collection for the last 16 years.  Shirley couldn't stay for all of the event as she was also volunteering in the school canteen that day!
