Satellite Meeting on Reading Journeys in Oxford August 12/13-2020 has been postponed
Due to the current health-crisis and on behalf of the IFLA’s Literacy and Reading, Public Libraries, Metropolitan Libraries and Libraries for Children’s and Young Adults Professional Units we announce with disappointed heart (and a logical head) that the IFLA Reading Journeys Satellite Conference in Oxford in August 2020 will not proceed. We might be able to set up another date if the situation allows future planning again.
We are deeply grateful for the contribution of the international library community on the work with the guidelines.
