Session 103 A Sanctuary in Times of Need

A sanctuary in times of need - the public library response


15 August 2016


Columbus Main Library


Join us at Columbus Main Library, a short walk from the Convention Centre, for an inspirational session on how public libraries make a difference.

Libraries throughout the world have a strong history of responding to natural disasters and humanitarian crises providing a welcoming environment, a place of refuge for body and soul, and a source of information.

Members of IFLA’s Public Libraries Standing Committee and our colleagues from IFLA's Library Services to Multicultural Populations Section have joined together to develop a program that will share experiences, inspire and demonstrate the power of libraries to make a difference in people’s lives.

Session 103 13:00 – 16:30

Programme, Public Libraries, Multicultural populations, Refugees
