Chinchón Municipal Library (Spain) has invited the librarians from their Sister Library Pyhäjoki Municipal Library (Finland) for a visit to their town. They’ll be travelling along with their city councilor for Culture next 5th to 9th October.
Librarians from Chinchón are part of a collective so called Rural Libraries Movement. From this collective, they help librarians from rural libraries that very often lack from staff and resources and are a little bit isolated. For this work, they are supported by the Coordination Unit and Extension Library of the Madrid region.
In order to get the most out of the visit of the Finnish librarians and politician, the head librarian at Chinchón contacted other librarians from the Rural Libraries Movement to organise a one-day Conference so they could exchange experiences. This Conference will take place next 6th October in the Regional Library of Madrid.
