Liz Jack: Libraries are a space that draw communities together
Albert Einstein reportedly said that “there is only one thing that you absolutely have to know”, and that’s the location of the library.
Today Tim is chatting with Liz Jack, Executive Director of Libraries Tasmania, about why that recommendation absolutely stands up, the role of libraries in our communities, and what it means that we can now access the library wherever we are, any time of day, and for a whole lot more than books.

Season Finale: What an Extraordinary Year!
I’ve had to do a lot of talking this year, but what I want to say to you today – my reflection on 2020 – is short and sweet:
This agency is extraordinary.
Our learners are extraordinary.
We really nailed the ‘together’ part of our brief this year.
And as much as we inspired and supported our learners, they (and our families and communities) kept inspiring and supporting us right back.
Let’s take some rest, recharge, and choose to be extraordinary again in 2021. But before we do, listen to this end-of-year wrap-up episode of the podcast.
We'll be back in 2021 with more stories about those people who teach, learn and live in Tasmania.
