On November 17, 2022 we invite librarians to participate in the International Partnership Forum for Libraries. Purpose of the Forum: presentation of the problems faced by Ukrainian libraries because of the war, establishing a new partnership among libraries and developing the culture of "sisters-libraries".

For now, several hundred libraries were completely destroyed or damaged due to Russian missile attacks in Ukraine. To rebuild them we need strong partnerships and 'sisterships' from the friendly libraries of Europe.

The event will be held on the Zoom platform on November 17, 2022, from 11:00 to 13:00 (Kyiv time)

Please apply via the form

We are welcoming participation of the following libraries:

  • Librarians from libraries around the world who are interested in helping and partnering with Ukrainian libraries.
  • Librarians from Ukraine who have stable international partnership relations.
  • Librarians from Ukraine and foreign representatives of the library industry in search of sister libraries abroad and opportunities to develop partnerships.
  • Ukrainian librarians working/training at libraries abroad during martial law in Ukraine.

The event is being implemented by the Charitable Foundation "Library Country" in partnership with NGO "Ukrainian Library Association" in frame of the project “Lib: continuation. The libraries are the heart of Ukrainian communities”.

The event is supported by The Black Sea Trust of Regional Cooperation of the German Marshall Fund.
