The first meeting in the Biblioteka Nowa cycle is over
In the ICE Kraków Congress Centre, the first meeting in the Biblioteka Nowa (New Library) cycle was held. Speakers from Poland and abroad presented challenges and directions of development of public libraries and the requirements that must be met so that they could fulfil their information, educational and integrative functions.
Biblioteka Nowa is a program of nationwide conferences aimed at elaborating the assumptions and direction of development of Polish public libraries for the next few years. The 1st edition, entitled Biblioteka 2020, czyli nowe wyzwania dla bibliotek publicznych(Library 2020 – new challenges for public libraries), was devoted to the changing role of libraries in modern society. The participants in the meeting included most outstanding experts in this field from Denmark, France, Germany and Great Britain.
The project is co-organised by the Krakow Festival Office.
