IFLA CPDWL SC members sending love to all our colleagues in Croatia

At the conclusion of the CPDWL Satellite Conference hosted in Zagreb by colleagues in the Croatian Library Association and the National and University Library in Zagreb and attended by so many people in the LIS community, we received a beautiful gift of Croatian folk art as a commemoration of our wonderful collaboration.

We’re sharing this back with you today, to let you know that you and all our friends in Croatia are in our thoughts at this difficult time. May you all remain safe and sound over the coming days.

Best wishes from your international friends across the world,

Dr Gillian Hallam FALIA PFHEA
Co-Chair, IFLA Section for Continuing Professional Development
and Workplace Learning (CPDWL)


Solidarity from Loida Garcia-Febo

I'm sending light and power to our colleagues in Croatia. Prayers for a swift and complete recovery from the earthquakes.
Puerto Rico has experienced earthquakes this past year and I know how scary they can be.

Strength, light and peace.

In solidarity,

Loida Garcia-Febo
