Cycling for libraries

Bicycling unconference for librarians and library lovers

28 July 7 August 2012

Cycling for libraries is a politically and economically independent international unconference for librarian and librarylovers, and a bicycle tour.

Cycling for libraries supports grassroots networking, and internationalism, physical and mental well-being of library professionals, 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.

Many values inherited from librarianship are present here: openness, liberalism, access to information, lifelong learning and innovativeness. Librarianship is also by it’s very nature humanist, internationalist, cross-boundary and hands-on.
