I have to say that it is quite difficult at the moment to specify some only one professional problem I want to solve. But well… for me was always very interesting inter-cultural cooperation and communication, so one professional challenge to be solved during the trip I would specify as getting new ideas and thoughts about multicultural work in the libraries: from library and customer points of view.
Society in big cities nowadays is not anymore homogeneous and in the library as in a public place different cultures have an opportunity to meet by different means. So I’d like to find among Cycling for libraries people those who work with “multiculturalism” in their libraries and share the experiences, get some ideas/ point of views/ new working methods.
My another mission is to write a colorful and talkative report about C4L for Russian library magazine. Be aware of paparazzi with a pink camera!
