This year’s Book Day/Book Night event in Croatian libraries was celebrated with the theme heading “Do robots dream of electric books?”. It was conceived to question the phenomenon of artificial intelligence, which is slowly but surely bringing changes to the understanding of artistic and then literary creativity, raising questions related to originality, authorship and copyright, but also offering solutions that can be helpful to humans – even when reading books .

In order to cater the proposition of the current topic four libraries from the NAPLE Sister Libraries Programme have teamed up to create a unique collaboration. Using the AI as their mutual topic as well libraries from Croatia and Spain have built a 3D AI art exhibition and this is their invitation for audience and librarians likewise:

Welcome to our online exhibition, created by AI and librarians, showcasing various images related to books, reading, libraries, and librarians. This exhibition is dedicated to Book Night 2023, and the participating libraries who created the artwork using AI are part of the NAPLE Sister Libraries Programme. The aim of the exhibition is to demonstrate the power of the creative process using AI while also having some fun. We hope you enjoy this unique and exciting display of art!
