Western Cape PACLIG COMPETITION: How do we see ourselves

Most librarians have been fighting against the image and stereotyping of how other people see us.  To change other people’s perspectives, we first have to find out how we view ourselves.
Enter our competition as an individual or library and give us an idea of how you see the librarian of today. Your entry can take any form (e.g. picture, photo, drawing, poem, essay, etc.)   It must be accompanied by your name or library’s name and contact details.
Prizes include a Kindle, memory sticks, mp3 player  etc.
All entries will automatically be entered into a lucky draw for a one year LIASA membership. 
                                              Closing date: 24 July 2012  
            Winners will be announced at PACLIG AGM in August 2012.
            Entries can be sent to Jacinta Avontuur at Bloubergstrand Library or emailed to
