Well, we’re all a bit exhausted now but are slowly replenishing the old batteries that going to conference always seems to deplete (metaphorical and literal – my phone and laptop seemed to run out of juice ridiculously often).
But anyway, for those of you in a similar situation, or if you didn’t manage to make it and wonder what it was like to stride the the convention centre soaking up all that big-brained thought, here’s a little video taster…

Well, we all have busy lives and no mistake. Sometimes it really is a challenge to get to the gym, but luckily your workout worries are over, for The Betty Glover Library Workout tape (ca. 1987) is here to help. Tremendous.
Wow, that lady is scary. Come on you “library desk-potatoes”, one and two, one and two…
Or if you’re really after a bit of physical exercise while you’re in Christchurch for conference, you could always just go for a walk around Hagley Park, hire a bike, or get a visitor’s pass for a local gym.

It’s not easy being green. Conferences can produce a lot of pollution and waste. That said, the annual LIANZA Conference is vital to our profession – it’s a chance for the community to network, showcase our stars, and share knowledge. So what can we as individuals do to lighten the impact on the environment? Check out the following clip on Youtube for green ideas:
This is the first in a series of clips highlighting a particular aspect of LIANZA Conference 2009 that have been put together by your erstwhile (and photogenic) Promotions and Communications team. We’ll be posting more over the next few weeks so check back here often.

You may be aware that Christchurch City Libraries has been celebrating 150 years of public library service in our fair city this year. There’s a whole raft of events happening this month including a competition for library customers of all ages to create a Youtube clip about the library. The Youtube competition winners were announced on Friday and as one of the judges I had the pleasure of awarding the prize for best Youth entry, Love in the library below.
Winner in the Kids category was Monster in the library and Choices took out the gong in the Adults section. Congratulations to all the winners. There is clearly a lot of talent out there.
