Come ride with us in September!
In September 2015 the Cycling for libraries -unconference will be taking librarianship on the move for the fifth time. The theme is New Nordic and the tour will take us from the fjords of Oslo in Norway, along the west coast of Sweden until we’ll arrive in Aarhus, Denmark, right in time for Next Library conference and the opening of Dokk1. Along the way we will be visiting academic, public and special libraries and discussing library issues. Everyone working in libraries or in some way involved with librarianship, and all library lovers are welcome in this event.
More info about route and registration coming later!
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.
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.”
