Stuart Hamilton, Ireland, Head, Libraries Development at Local Government Management Agency
“May I begin by thanking Stuart Hamilton, Head of the Libraries Department in the Local Government Management Agency, for the invitation to send this message of support today.
"It has been proven, too, that taking time each day to read for pleasure is one of the best ways we can combat fatigue and anxiety associated with the COVID-19 pandemic and the associated restrictions that we all must endure." - Michael Higgins, President of Ireland
Robin Westphal, State Librarian, Missouri, United States
“Don’t concentrate on ‘new normal'. Concentrate on ‘better.’ It’s not really going back to what that traditional library service was, but it’s providing better library service.
It’s so much more than just e-books. It’s the e-audio books, it’s the streaming services, if you can’t afford Netflix at home, many libraries have streaming services, that with your library card, you’re able to stream movies or TV shows.” - Robin Westphal
