The Cycling for libraries category includes daily reports of the “Cycling for Libraries” days from 2011, 2012 and 2013, that are politically and economically independent international unconferences for librarians and library lovers, as well as a bicycle tour. The purpose of the unconference is to gather library professionals and library lovers all around the world together to cycle long distances and to discuss strategic issues of the library field in seminars along the route. Cycling for libraries supports grassroots networking, internationalism, physical and mental well-being of library professionals and the crucial role of libraries for the society and for the intellectual and scientific education in general. This category also includes video greetings for the unconference.
