Lunch & Learn: Libraries without Borders

May 10 @ 11:00 am CDT

/ Free

Join us for an exclusive, free event for Global Minnesota members!

Our Lunch & Learn series continues with a virtual visit from Libraries Without Borders, an international NGO that provides access to information and digital technology to underserved communities. Jeremy Lachal, Executive Director of Bibliothèques Sans Frontières and Aaron Greenberg, Executive Director of Libraries Without Borders US will speak about their work building pop-up libraries for refugees fleeing the violence in Ukraine and for residents of mobile home communities in Northern Minnesota.

Jeremy and Aaron will talk about the history and work of their organizations, and the innovative tools that they use to bring the 21st century library and its resources to people around the country and around the world – from refugee camps in Jordan and Bangladesh to laundromats in San Antonio and Baltimore.

There will be time for a Q&A after the Zoom presentation.

Watch one example of the work of Libraries without Borders here.
