The Central Public Library of Veria at the European Parliament.

The Only Greek Library

Brussels 8 October 2019

On 8 October 2019, libraries from all over Europe are meeting with the Members of the European Parliament (MEPs), as part of the actions for the “Code Week”, at the premises of the European Parliament.

The Public Libraries 2030 (PL2030) organization is hosting “Generation Code: Born at the Library”, which is an interactive exhibition showcasing the top innovative digital exhibits from public libraries across the E.U. The exhibition takes place at the European Parliament at the beginning of October every year.

The organization has also created the MEP Library Lovers Group which forms a bridge between the libraries and the Members of the European Parliament. That group brings together Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) from around the E.U. and and across the political spectrum, who share their passion about libraries. Across Europe, 65.000 public libraries form an accessible and safe place for their members, children as well as adults. Over 2.3 million E.U. citizens attend a digital literacy course in their library and are learning basic digital skills.

On Tuesday 8 October, the Central Public Library of Veria, will be the one and only Greek Library which will be represented at the Brussels European Parliament among 76 participants from 25 countries, at “Generation Code: Born at the Library” event. A small sample of the numerous, innovative technology activities that the Library of Veria is running will be displayed. (Robotics, 3D printing, Virtual Reality, Electric Circuits).

Moreover, from 5 to 20 October 2019, workshops and coding courses for children and adults are taking place.

Let’s celebrate then, the amazing work that public libraries do every day in filling the digital gap of our communities. Let’s feel proud once again of the Central Public Library of Veria and its appeal on a national and international level.

The Central Public Library of Veria owes its presence in Brussels to the educational Centre “Easy Education” that is our sponsor for 2019.

Our main sponsor for 2019 is Social and Cultural Affairs Welfare Foundation (KIKPE).
