Public Libraries 2020 Tour highlights today’s library stories

Monday, February 2, 2015 - 10:00

Today marks the official start of the Public Libraries 2020 Tour. This tour highlights a series of stories from library users, librarians and politicians from across Europe, all with one central message: libraries change lives. During the coming weeks and months we will be publishing short videos with inspiring stories on our YouTube channel.

The goal of the Public Libraries 2020 Tour is to show the fantastic work that Europe’s 65,000 public libraries are doing. From innovative digital solutions to community gatherings, public libraries build stronger communities by contributing to social inclusion, digital inclusion and lifelong learning.

By sharing the stories of library users, visionary librarians and politicians, we show some of the faces of the 100 million Europeans who visit their library. Across all countries, all ages and all professions there is one clear message: libraries change lives.
