Cycling For Libraries
cyclingforlibraries.org/ Cycling for libraries is a politically and economically independent unconference and a bicycle tour. We are bicycling from Copenhagen, Denmark to Berlin, Germany via Gedser and Rostock from 28th May to 7th June 2011. Read more about the route. The tour will take about 10 days. At the moment we have confirmed only the day of the closing seminar, which will be on June 6th in Berlin. The official closing will be on the next day after participating the opening ceremony and the joint cycling event of the German Library Conference.
It builds physical and mental well-being of library professionals, grassroots networking, and internationalism and — last but not least — the crucial role of libraries for the society and for the intellectual and scientific education in general. Cycling for libraries also supports environmental values and ecological way of life.
Cycling for libraries inherits many values from librarianship. Openness, liberalism, access to information, lifelong learning and innovativeness are among these values. Librarianship is also by it’s very nature humanist, internationalist, cross-boundary and concrete.
Who is organizing this?
Cycling for libraries is an independent event, not organized by any existing formal organization. It is made possible by a sovereign, international network of library enthusiasts. Read more about the people. You can join too, we need you!
Who can participate?
Everyone working in libraries or in some way involved with librarianship, and all library lovers are welcome in this event. We hope to see there all of you with an open and optimistic mind towards libraries (and bicycling). We want to hear your say about the development of libraries and how it should be done. If you recognize yourself in the description above, we are happy to invite you to the memorable, first-ever Cycling for libraries unconference! (by S. L. Faisal)
