Cycling for Libraries

– a pretty unique “unconference” for all librarians and librarylovers –

from Amsterdam to Brussels:   18.-26. June 2013

This year we are doing about 400km and visit Amsterdam, The Hague, Delft, Gent and The European Parliament in Brussels. And each and every one of the the places in between 🙂

The idea of this professional event is to get out of our usual habitat in the libraries, offices and from auditoriums watching powerpoints all day long. Instead we are boldly looking for more engaging, productive, innovative, co-operative and humane ways to meet up with our colleagues.

And more fun too. The group of 100, international librarians from two dozen countries on their bicycles is quite a thrill!
