100 and more cycling international library colleagues are on their way to the 100th German Library Conference—the German Library Association (dbv) is excited about the Cycling For Libraries idea and looks forward to welcome our athletic colleagues in Berlin in June 2011!
Speed, dynamics and motion—such qualities are not only vital to move ahead on a bicycle but are also characteristic for the development of today’s libraries. This shared athletic and fun campaign sends a message against the stale image of libraries, and fits well into the concept of the Jubilee Library Conference. The dbv explicitly supports this international initiative and will encourage our members to participate.
We will experience this journey together and look forward to seeing you come down the home stretch–welcome to Germany, cycling librarians!
