DIRECTORATE-GENERAL FOR INTERNAL POLICIES POLICY DEPARTMENT B: STRUCTURAL AND COHESION POLICIES CULTURE AND EDUCATION

In recent years, public libraries (and local authorities) have risen to the challenges born from ongoing social, digital and economic changes. This briefing paper provides a short analysis of the impact that public libraries can have on the intellectual and cultural development of citizens with a particular focus on their vital role in providing an open public space for learning, culture and social communication. Following on from the analysis, respective recommendations for policy action at EU level are outlined.

 

This briefing note provides an analysis and evaluation of the current and prospective roles of public libraries in their local communities, their services to the public and to their contracting authorities. It is commissioned by the European Parliament’s Committee on Culture and Education (CULT) in preparation for a workshop on “The new role of public libraries” to be held in Brussels on 20 June 2016.
