In September, 90 librarians and library lovers cycled 445 miles from Norway to Sweden to Denmark advocating for libraries, visiting innovative libraries and making lasting professional and personal connections. Cycling for Libraries is an annual international un-conference organized by the International Association for Library Advocacy to increase awareness of the valuable services and resources that libraries offer to the community as well as share ideas across borders. Come hear about the advantages of such an unusual un-conference and learn how you could participate in next year’s international tour or organize a local one of your own.
