Sustainability in Public Libraries - Better funding for a great good place

After the first successful joint webinar in May 2021, EBLIDA again joins forces with the initiators of the action “Raise Awareness for Public Libraries in Europe” in the framework of the Urban Agenda for the EU (Partnership “Culture and Cultural Heritage).”

Two freshly released reports will be presented during the webinar on November 23rd. The first includes an evaluation of funding structures of European public libraries as result of a survey carried out by the Action Group. The other presentation is a pre-synthesis of the second European report on sustainable development and libraries, a survey carried out by EBLIDA in the course of summer 2021.

You are cordially invited to attend and to use the opportunity to find out more about current developments in the important topics of financing for public libraries and how the Agenda 2030 is applied in European public libraries.

We look forward to meeting you on 23rd November, 16:00-17:30 (CET).
