Saturday 15 June 2013 will witness the first ever PMLG Un-conference – discussing the topics that matter to you. Everyone who works in a library has their own areas of expertise, their own unique experiences and an individual perspective. Sign up for free tickets here:

The PMLG Un-conference will provide a platform for sharing ideas, thoughts and problems. As is the ethos of an un-conference, all the day’s activities will be sculpted by its participants, giving you the opportunity to choose the topics that capture the most relevant and up to date issues facing public and mobile libraries. And the best part... It’s absolutely free!

B.Y.O.P.L. (Bring Your Own Packed Lunch... and cake to share, if you feel bakey!) 

You don't have to be a member of PMLG or CILIP to take part.

For more information on the Unconference (including the opportunity to post your discussion topics) please visit the wiki.
