Theme: Celebrating ten years of EBLIDA!
|03 May - 04 May 2002|
|The Hague, Netherlands|
The tenth anniversary of EBLIDA was celebrated by EBLIDA Members and friends with a delicious edible book during the Council meeting in The Hague at a reception hosted by the Mayor of the Hague at the City Hall on Friday, 3 May 2002.
On the official day of the anniversary, EBLIDA marked the occasion with friends and colleagues from the Dutch Public Library Association, who have been hosts to EBLIDA since its foundation. Flowers, champagne, flags and a cake were all ready to celebrate ten successful years of EBLIDA!
Representing a network of over 90.000 public, academic and special libraries and archives throughout Europe, EBLIDA has been successful in actively promoting the interests of members to the European institutions and policy making bodies. Our goal is to ensure access and availability of information to European citizens in the digital age by providing global resources in a local setting. Topics include lifelong learning, freedom of expression, copyright, VAT on electronic resources, promoting the role of libraries and archives in the emerging democracies of Central and Eastern Europe. In short: vital cornerstones that make the information society a reality for European citizens.
How better to celebrate these achievements than with a book with a turning page, made from the finest ingredients from all over Europe, and an original story by Anke Kranendonk, a prize winning Dutch children’s author, handwritten in chocolate!< back to overview
