Keeping Inspired!

A rare opportunity to hear Kevin Hennah speak at the site of his latest redevelopment, Launceston College.  Kevin provides inspiration on both design and self-managed makeovers.  He has presented around the world, has a wealth of ideas to share and is passionate about keeping libraries relevant!
