LIANZA President, Paula Eskett, shares her speech from the night with us below.
Ko au te Tumuaki o Te Rau Herenga O Aotearoa ara LIANZA
Ko Paula Eskett tōku ingoa
To stand here today a LIANZA President formalising LIANZA’s relationship with National Library of New Zealand Te Puna Mātauranga o Aotearoa is a special day for our organisation, members and for me personally.
The relationship between LIANZA and National Library has evolved, developed and strengthened over many, many years and has grown a strong foundation built on trust, mutual respect, optimism and possibility.
Today we celebrate and socialise formally our shared values which include;
- Honouring Te Tiriti o Waitangi, committing to relationships that understand the needs and expectations of Maori and continue to progress and improve responsive library services together
- Strengthening the library and information profession through responsive workforce development and leadership training
- Supporting training providers to deliver world-class library and information qualifications in an Aotearoa context
- Individually and collectively working to create sustainable change and improvement in education and literacy outcomes of all young New Zealanders, which creates a nation of readers
Libraries – their services, spaces, people and resources enrich the cultural and economic lives of New Zealander and together we can do more, be more and create more for New Zealanders.
We believe this individually and collectively.
LIANZA and National Library have been working closely for the last three years in pursuit of winning the WLIC for New Zealand and the Pacific.
If ever a partnership needed testing a WLIC bid could be it. We have genuinely proven to each other, our stakeholders, members and communities that in addition to a shared purpose; trust confidence, integrity and open communication are our shared ways of working.
E hara taku toa
I te toa takitahi
Ho toa takitani
My strength I not a an individual, but as a collective
Tenā koutou, tēnā koutou, tenā koutou katoa.
