Cycling for libraries is a professional unconference and a library advocacy and publicity campaign and it will also support the well-being of all librarians. It teaches cooperation and acting accordingly jointly agreed rules, as well as the fact that in the library profession one must be able to come in the public arena and bravely take a stand on behalf of one’s profession.
We operate with the support and encouragement of a number of different library associations and we share the values of IFLA and EBLIDA. We speak for the openness and cooperation and we want to support non-governmental and non-organizational, i.e. cross-border library expertise and library skills at all levels.
We hope that you as a good and open-minded employer – a library director, a library chief or a head librarian –- will understand the nature of this professional unconference and will give your employees the opportunity to participate Cycling for libraries during their working hours. As an librarian, it’s great if your employer will support the event, because it gives you the opportunity to keep yourself in good physical condition and keep up to date in the development of the rapidly changing library world at one go! It is certain that you will come back in better shape than you left! Your entire organization will benefit. And yes – bring your colleagues there too!
