The heart of the community


Public libraries welcome a diverse group of citizens – more than any other public or private institution, public libraries offer a unique space for encounter and exchange. We see libraries as a dynamic and inclusive space accessible to all that connects with local citizens and global concerns.


We want to re-ignite a European spirit of collaboration, encourage an exchange of ideas, and foster informed, representative, and enlightened collaboration.
