Programming cultural events in a network of libraries

Lyon Public Library has long been committed into cultural action, as a strategic policy is to advocate access to knowledge in an inclusive way. The project of the library is to put forward not just actions but “events” on various topics, that are structure access to knowledge for the citizens, federate internally the librarians around strong projects, and strengthen our identity in the city and our professional role as a cultural stakeholder. The event is based on a general concept, and then derived for 3 to 4 months into a large exhibition and a program of cultural actions – from 60 to 120 actions - taking places on the whole red of equipment, addressing different publics, with digital publications and education, with an overall more visible communication action plan. The role of library is reinforced by numerous partnerships with cultural institutions, universities, civil societies organizations, editors and private companies that enable us to go deeper into strong issues, collaborate in new ways especially the digital hot topics and put up together new cultural actions and study days.
