The importance of having a library in any society was yesterday reiterated to par­ticipants during the Pacific Librar­ies Summit.

The summit was officially opened by the Permanent Secretary for Education, Heritage, Arts, Library services and National archives Ali­son Burchell at The Pearl Resort yesterday morning.

The summit culminated the first ever Pacific Libraries Vision and call to action to inspire Pacific col­laboration in advancing the devel­opment of public library services.

The summit also aimed to build and strengthen a supportive net­work that will ensure public librar­ies are resourced and equipped to undertake their vitally important work in communities.

The summit was attended by vari­ous library stakeholders, leaders, practitioners, innovators and sup­porters from various governments, NGOs and international aid agen­cies.
