Public Libraries 2030

Invite-only in-person activity

European Parliament, Ixelles - Elsene, Belgium

Generation Code: Born at the Library is an interactive exhibition showcasing the top innovative digital exhibits from public libraries across the EU. The exhibition takes place every year at the European Parliament during EU Code Week. Sponsored by MEP Library Lovers, the exhibition explores how future technologies are interacting with libraries across Europe. Unbeknown to many, Europe’s 65,000 public libraries are a uniquely accessible space for users (both children and adults) to improve their digital skills. In the EU, over 2,3 million people a year attend a digital literacy course in their library, learning anything from basic digital skills to coding. It is a time for celebrating the amazing work that public libraries do every day in filling the digital gap of our communities. Join and explore the exciting world of coding, robotics, 3D printing, virtual reality and much more with fun activities that simulate the daily work of public libraries in introducing people to new technologies!
