  1. Congratulation. I wish you wonderful, useful and fruitful years together to benefit European libraries and Eblida as an organisation
    The Dutch colleagues can be proud of the election of one of them, Erna, to the presidency. I wish you a successful term, Erna.
    It is a pleasure to see Andrew reelected. He was a great director in my last years in office and I am sure a wise and very competent member of your board.

    • Thank you Jan Ewout! I’ll do my best to live up to the expectations 😉 I feel that together with the board and the staf we can take advocacy for libraries and working together on that to a next level.
