Libraries of Barcelona: 10 more years. New challenges, new opportunities is not only a revision and updating of the Libraries Plan 1998-2010. Even though a balance is made, in general terms more than positive, of the deployment of the Plan during these years, the fundamental aim is to look at how the library services, professionals and facilities should respond to a new social reality, and to a context with new challenges and opportunities.
This document aims to be more an orientational guide than a new guide. And it has been elaborated with the conviction that it is fundamental to maintain the political commitment so as to be able to continue improving the network of facilities, to widen the services maintaining the quality achieved (a distinctive feature of the Libraries of Barcelona), and to improve these services so that the Libraries continue to be close, open and aware of the new demands of the citizens.
