Next Library 2013

International Library Conference in Aarhus, Denmark

16 – 19 June 2013


Meet, share, learn and co-create – an international event for open-minded library innovators and decision makers.

The overall purpose for Next Library 2013 is to inspire public libraries to re-imagination, civic engagement and collaborative innovation with the perspective of supporting equal access to technology, learning and active citizenship for all.

The program is in progress and will be a mix of structured programme with a few excellent keynote speakers and at least 15 interactive parallel sessions, poster presentations, energizers, surprises and social events.

Including of course an engaging Get2Gether and the fabulous Networking Dinner Party at Varna Mansion, which often tends to turn into a garden party.

Optional events: Site visits to libraries and cultural institutions in Denmark and Aarhus and a post-un-conference day.

You are all invited to join and participate in shaping the programme!
