Training Opportunities for 2014

03 December 2013

PLS staff are committed to providing training and assistance to member libraries staff, and to that end, in 2014 we are planning regularly scheduled training webinars on a variety of topics.

So far, we have created a training schedule for the months of January, February, and March.  You can view the schedule at http://www.peacelibrarysystem.ab.ca/calendars-and-schedules.

As training dates approach, we will be sending out emails to invite you to sign up for the training sessions that you wish to attend.

Also, if you have a desire for training that you don’t see provided, please submit a request through the new “training request” button on the left hand side of our website.

Getting Ready for Year End

28 November 2013

Winter has finally arrived and along with it come year end rollover activities for Acquisitions staff.  As always, staff will be working hard to ensure that all orders get entered and sent to the vendors before the year end cut off. In order for them to accomplish this, all orders from member libraries must be  received at Peace Library System headquarters no later than November 29th at 4:00 pm.  Orders received after that date will not be entered and sent to the vendors until January 2014.

All vouchers must be received at PLS headquarters no later than December 12th at 4:00 pm.  Vouchers received after that date will not be entered and paid until January 2014. Your cooperation will ensure that year end activities are accomplished in a timely manner.
