This year marked the 125th anniversary of the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP), a professional body which represents libraries of all shapes and sizes across the UK. As part of those celebrations, a new list of 125 people was published during their annual conference in July to recognise a new generation of library professionals who are making an impact and leaders to watch out for.
Library Assistant, Jack, who started off at this library as an Apprentice in 2021 and passed in April this year, was one of those chosen individuals! He received a special medal to mark the occasion. He has now begun the path to achieve professional Certification.
