Online and Live session

Curated by AIB, Eblida, Bergamo Library Network and Rete delle Reti

What lessons have public libraries learned from the experience of the pandemic? Which activities and services have been implemented and which have been reduced? Which collaborations have been consolidated among libraries or activated with other cultural actors? How has the relationship with the public changed? A reflection on Italian and European experiences on the future of public libraries centred on the redesign of spaces and services and on the definition of new skills for librarians, increasingly oriented towards cultural and strategic planning.
