About usWe are currently piloting Libraries lead with Digital in these libraries:
The Public Libraries 2020 programme (PL2020) is working to raise awareness about the importance of the EU 65,000 public libraries as modern learning hubs close to citizens and (potential) learners. Public libraries have been expanding their role in local communities enormously over the last decades – many of them now help people develop their digital skills, advance or acquire other skills (such as literacy) through various lifelong learning opportunities and offer a neutral and trusted space for people to create, learn, and connect.
