Chair Elect & Treasurer for YLG Wales Wanted!


Youth Libraries Group Wales has an exciting opportunity to announce. We are looking for two enthusiastic and dedicated persons to become Chair Elect & Treasurer. We are an energetic and lively group and it is a great opportunity to network and a brilliant way to develop professionally. 

In your role as Chair Elect you will shadow the Chair for a year in preparation to becoming Chair yourself but there is plenty of opportunity to gain experience in that time. The Chair Elect supports the work of the Chair and can deputise if necessary.  The Treasurer will undertake all financial aspects of the group

Other roles you can take on are:
• Secretary
• National YLG Representative 

We are a very inclusive and friendly group who would like to encourage as many people to take part in children’s work and activities and to promote libraries and reading for pleasure. 

As a committee we meet up 3 times a year to plan our training day/unconference and our CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway YLG Wales shortlisting day.

We do ask that you are a member of CILIP and of YLG. Our members come from public libraries, schools, school library services, colleges, universities and early year’s settings.

The closing date for applications is 30th May 2020. For more information and a full job description please contact Alexandra Ball at
