The new normals in a European Agenda for public libraries

In 2020, EBLIDA undertook a survey aimed at reviewing the state of libraries in the face of the Covid-19 crisis. This survey was updated in 2021.

At the end of the double survey, EBLIDA identifies five new normals being promoted within a European Library Agenda in the post-Covid-19 age:

  • 1. A socially inclusive library;
  • 2. Technologies are mutating and shaping libraries in new ways;
  • 3. Uncharted economic territory: review the library budget composition;
  • 4. Library governance at central and local levels;
  • 5. Do not forget the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development.
