WLIC 2019Thu., 29 August 2019, 10:45 – 12:45 at Lambrakis

This session will also be live streamed at no cost through the WLIC 2019 website at 2019.ifla.org.

Have you ever fallen in love in a library – whether it be with the building, with the books and stories within, with the thrill of the eternal quest for information, or with the other people you meet? Can a place of culture, knowledge and information be a place of passion? 

This 2-hour session will explore this theme from a range of different angles – from the ways that libraries can tap into ideas of love and passion as a way of celebrating libraries, to representations and reinterpretations of traditional love stories, to managing relationships whilst maintaining professional conduct, and more!

Last year’s session on Librarian Fashion was a hit at the IFLA congress in Kuala Lumpur, and this year is looking to be yet another entertaining, sometimes-surprising session that will explore this topic that, on one level, sounds like a fun theme, but as human relationships can be complicated, we also want to address these topics professionally and respectfully.

More announcements on keynote speakers and presentations will be revealed as we come closer to the day!
