Forward

I made a song for the wonderful library conference Next Library.
People can share their digital postcards with the conference this week. You know what to do…

Lyrics / song / video by Jan Holmquist

Forward:

When everyone is in lockdown
In a life of isolation
What keeps you mentally sound
And away from desperation

Is the stories that we share
As humans across time
People everywhere
We share what is sublime

We build communities 
On humanity and facts
To create opportunities
For people who reacts

To knowledge and unity
And professionals who care
In your local library
You find them anywhere



We need to know how to proceed
To build what lays ahead

We remove the stuff we dread
And add the new stuff that we need

We learn how to learn anew
And unlearn what is outdated
We will never be dictated
We will find what is true



As we leave our lives
as solitudinarians
We need the skills of our
community librarians

Culture, stories, literature, knowledge, learning is what we need
Smarter communities  – For our future to proceed

Libraries Change Lives

There are 65000 libraries in Europe welcoming more than 100 million people each year. That is an amazing knowledge infrastructure to make our communities smarter.
In this short video some of these statistics and core values are shared.
Libraries connect people and their knowledge  – and support learning and knowledge creation.

Spend 90 seconds watching this video to celebrate and highlight the difference libraries make everyday across Europe and the rest of the world.
Libraries change lives.

The video is published by Public Libraries 2020 and The Reading & Writing Foundation. It is also strongly approved by the Library Avengers.

Introducing library services brick by brick

The combination of fine libraries and LEGO bricks is not new and is often seen in the library blogosphere…
It is now wonder. Libraries are magnificent and LEGO is fun – What is not like?
This LEGO stop motion movie promotes the Faculty Library of Social Sciences at University of Copenhagen and it is absolutely awesome… Enjoy!

The video is Directed by Informationspecialists Hazel Engelsmann (haen@kb.dk, @engelsmann) & Marc Sales (masa@kb.dk, @docterz). Produced by Head of Faculty Library Christian Lauersen (@clauersen)

I have posted stop motion lego movies before – So if you want more.. Here you are.
