  1. Congratulations to Mikkel – and to the European Bureau of Library Association – an international network of libraries. EBLIDA has huge importance for libraries’ impact on learning and democratic societies in Europe – and its obligations extend to societies across the planet. Looking forward to follow the future of EBLIDA!
