Face to Face networking opportunities are provided to clients twice a year; at the annual conferences in the fall and through meetings throughout Northern Ontario in the spring. These Networking meetings are coupled with some training workshop. The Networking groups are based on geography and areas of interest, very similar to the former Librarian Advisory Committee Structure.  The purpose of the Networking structure is to provide opportunities for clients to meet face to face and discuss programs and issues from their individual libraries, as well as cooperative ventures.
