Abstract

Tablet Cafés, Code Hours, Preservation, and Sustainability in Libraries - The Aruba National Library and the UN Agenda 2030: A Small Island Case Study from the Caribbean

In this paper, staff from Biblioteca National Aruba share examples of how library policy and sustainability are inseparably linked and interconnected, and how small-scale libraries can take on important roles in larger-scale processes, like the UN 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Libraries are inherently designed as sustainable institutions, combining core societal values as literacy, lifelong learning, access to all, building societies and celebrating diversity and culture. This paper is a direct result of Biblioteca Nacional Aruba’s participation in IFLA’s International Advocacy Programme for Libraries, Development and the UN 2030 Agenda.
