Libraries exist all over the world in diverse communities, and while each has unique objectives and needs, many goals, experiences, and challenges are shared among libraries across the globe, making learning from colleagues in different countries inspiring and eye-opening. Through a generous donation to fund an international travel fellowship, Alexandria (VA) Library staff have traveled to Scotland, England, the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, and Sweden to explore libraries, learn about international librarianship, and bring best practices back to Alexandria. Discover the unique initiatives taking place in European libraries, how to build your own connections with international libraries, and how to cultivate donor support for uncommon initiatives.
