Several hundred libraries were fully destroyed or damaged because of Russian missile attacks in Ukraine.
To rebuild them it needs strong partnerships and ‘sisterships’ from the friendly libraries of Europe. That is why it is organized the Forum on 17 November 11.00-13.00 (Kyiv time) to present the situation of Ukrainian libraries and search for opportunities for cooperation.
Purpose of the Forum:
Establishing a new partnership among libraries and developing the culture of”sisterslibraries”.
Presentation of the problems faced by Ukrainian libraries because of the war.
The registration form is available here: https://forms.gle/igkiYSHhVJD6D6E96
