A great opportunity to get together with other delegates, to discuss and debate issues relating to library provision and reading for children and young people. The unconference is open to all – you don’t need to work in a library to attend.
YLG members will also have the chance to vote for the Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals 2015 nominations from the North West region.*

FREE GOODY BAG for all attendees!
Bring your own lunch or try out Central Library’s lovely café. We can’t provide refreshments but we do encourage you to join us in bringing cake!

* When planning the date for our unconference we had missed this year’s October 6th cut off date for CKG nominations, which is earlier than it has been in the past few years. By the time we became aware of the closing date we were committed to our unconference date as the venue was booked etc. We realised it would not be practicable to run an extra, earlier event to get the regional nominations, so asked if we could submit them on the day of our unconference. The Chair of Judges very generously gave us permission to do this, but only for our regional nominations, individuals must get their own nominations in by October 6th.
