What is Cycling for libraries?
Founded in 2011, the Cycling for libraries is an international cycling conference for librarians and library lovers. It aims to advocate libraries and increase awareness of the valuable services and resources that libraries offer to the community.
Passion for Libraries…?
In November 2013, the Cycling for libraries team with its members set up an international association to support Cycling for libraries tours as well as voluntary based library advocacy and library campaigns. The official name of the association is International Association for Library Advocacy, but it has also been called as “Voice for libraries” or “Passion for libraries” according to its mission.
They said about libraries
“An original idea. That can’t be too hard. The library must be full of them.”
“There is not such a cradle of democracy on earth as the Free Public Library, this republic of letters, where neither rank, office, nor wealth receives the slightest consideration.”
“I had no books at home. I started to frequent a public library in Lisbon. It was there, with no help except curiosity and the will to learn, that my taste for reading developed and was refined.”
