The winners of The London Book Fair (LBF) International Excellence Awards have been announced last week, with seven recipients named from across four continents. The Ghana Library Authority took home The Library of the Year Award, with judges saying it “really struck us as an amazing story of transformation and an example of how library services can tackle some of the most pressing social issues confronting their users. From using technology to support remote learning to promoting information skills, literacy and reading, this is a great example of the difference a quality library can make.” The winners of the International Excellence Awards will be celebrated at The Online Book Fair in a series of ‘In Conversation With…’ events on Tuesday 29th June. The winners will be speaking about their prize-winning work and the pressing issues within their area of publishing. These sessions will appear alongside author talks, publishing panels, seminars and more at The Online Book Fair.
