We organized a session at IFLA conference in San Juan, where we shared news on Sister Libraries :

114 libraries have registered (86 had registered a year ago)

11 partnerships have been made.

The first paired libraries received the set Little Books for Little Hands (see the post).

All paired libraries received the Sister Libraries poster, especially designed by the Spanish illustrator David Pintor :

Some Sister Libraries prepared short videos for the conference. Here are the links, they are really worth watching ! :

Ruxandra Nazare, from Romania, showed a great PowerPoint presentation : Romania-Serbia

We are sure these videos and PowerPoint will inspire other libraries!

A system of “Godmothers” has been installed, where registered libraries can write to, or be contacted by, members of the Standing Committee of IFLA section Libraries for Children and Young Adults.
