IV Meeting on Libraries and their Municipalities
This meeting is organized by the Spanish Ministry of Culture in collaboration with the FEMP –Spanish Federation of Municipalities and Provinces- every two years since 2005 with the objective of consolidating the cooperation between local government and public library service.
To accomplish this goal, during the meeting, good practises developed in local libraries will be presented. They constitute the result of the cooperative work of librarians and politicians. Later, a round table will be held in which they will speak about the present and the future of this cooperation.
Each edition is dedicated to a different topic. In this fourth edition, the topic is Local Memory and it is aimed to speak about the role of libraries in the recuperation, preservation and widespread of local memory, and the importance of local libraries as agents in the process of social coherence in their municipalities.
This IV Meeting on Libraries and their Municipalities will take place next 17th November 2011 in the Ministry of Culture Auditorium in Madrid. You can read the full program following the next URL:
