On behalf of FIL we would like to say a big thank you to Christine Shipman (Treasurer) and Helen Trollope (Vice Chair/Web & Marketing Officer) and Rose Goodier (IFLA Observer) who stepped down from the FIL Committee at Interlend 2013 for all your hard work, commitment and dedication to FIL. Your skills, expertise and knowledge will be sorely missed.
