Scenes from the Western Cape Breakfast

The Western Cape branch held its annual End of the Year Recruitment Breakfast at Durbanville Hills Winery today (Wednesday 30th November 2011).       Our guest speaker was  awesome author S.A. Partridge who shared her thoughts about Young Adult fiction and read a brief extract from her latest book,  Dark Poppy's Demise .

We also took the opportunity to hand over the Western Cape trophy to the Western Cape Librarian of the Year for 2011,  Christelle Lubbe.  And we announced  that the UCT School of Librarianship would remain open and that the PGDIPLIS, Masters and Doctoral Degrees would be on offer from 2012.

Father Christmas's helpers,  Mercia Sias and Jacinta Avontuur, conducted the lucky draws.   Thank you Mercia of World Books, and Red Feather Promotions for the donations.

As Julian Schroeder, Vice Chair of the branch observed during the thank yous,  that members should head back to their libraries, check the Young Adults section for S.A. Partridge's books, and if they weren't there,  to do the right thing and get them!

The breakfast was fully booked with all places taken up on the day!   The food was delicious,  the service excellent and the view priceless.
