On 10 December 2014, Public Libraries 2020 published a 90 second animated video highlighting how public libraries in Europe strengthen communities and help people: Libraries Change Lives. The video was officially launched at the Dutch National Public Library Conference by H.R.H. Princess Laurentien of the Netherlands, Honorary Chair of the Reading & Writing Foundation and Patron of the Dutch Public Library Association.
The video shows some of the challenges of the 21st century and how Europe’s 65,000 public libraries work every day to help people meet those challenges.
