Kia ora! I work in Tauranga, which is one of the fastest growing cities in NZ. My job title (from June 2018) is Team Leader: Library Service Delivery, which involves supporting the community libraries, Mobile Library and the Central Library circulation department.
Before this job I was Team Leader: Children’s and Teenagers’ Services for many years.
I am passionate about public libraries and the role we play within the community, and hope to contribute to Tauranga City Libraries becoming an inclusive, bicultural library service.
The INELI programme was a wonderful experience. It was a chance to learn and reflect on change and innovation with a group of thoughtful, curious people. As Tauranga City Libraries undergoes a significant staffing restructure and we prepare to build new libraries I’ve appreciated the advice and experience of INELI colleagues and mentors, and love the sharing nature of our profession.
