When you think of library, do you think of a place where people find jobs? Where kids read to dogs? Where grandparents Skype with their families?
All these activities and many more are happening at Europe's 65.000 public libraries every day.
The Public Libraries 2020 team visited public libraries in 15 EU countries to document some of their stories. We also invited Members of the European Paliament to visit a library in their country to see with their own eyes how libraries change lives.
In this book you can read the personal stories that give a face to the statistics.
