EBLIDA (European Bureau of Library, Information and Documentation Associations), NAPLE (National Authorties on Public Libraries in Europe) and Public Libraries 2030 are collaborating to create the “Libraries for Refugees” network, which provides links to services for displaced Ukrainians. These resources show what libraries can offer refugees and promote the provision of similar services in other countries.
