Live-stream recording from a two-day webinar “Nordic Libraries Annual 2021”. This live streaming video includes an opening speech to 2021 conference by Päivi Jokitalo.
On 2021 the conference was organized online from 3rd to 4th of November, and the focus was on libraries and democracy. According to many Nordic library policies, the task of libraries is to ensure citizens’ equal access to knowledge, education, culture, and new citizenship skills. The work carried out by libraries should support inclusiveness, community, and opportunities for making an impact, to strengthen social cohesion and the readiness of citizens to assume social responsibility.
