Librarians and senior staff from Qatar National Library shared their expertise and experiences with their international peers at the 85th World Library and Information Congress held in Greek's capital Athens.
The librarians, from several different disciplines, discussed best practices and the latest innovations in information services in a series of workshops, meetings and panel sessions with their counterparts from more than 110 countries. The conference was sponsored by the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions.
A press statement from the library said that Manager of the Children's and Young Adults' Library Hind Al Khulaifi and Information Services Librarian Virgilio Medina offered their perspective in a presentation titled "Qatar National Library as a Hub for Community Engagement for Young Learners: What Have We Achieved So Far as a New Public Library?"
"I was proud to share with fellow librarians how the community in Qatar has embraced the Library as a public space to engage in learning. We are especially proud of cultivating our younger readers, and the congress was an opportunity to exchange valuable ideas on how to continue doing so," said Al Khulaifi.
Information Services Librarian at the Library Ahmed Al Malki showcased his poster presentation, "Transforming Qatar National Library Young Learners into Lifelong Learners Through Collaborative Efforts and Partnerships."
Executive Director of the Library Dr Sohair Wastawy, who also attended the congress, said: "Our team at the Library is eager to continue developing professionally, and especially to learn new ideas and skills that we can share with our visitors and our colleagues. This was an excellent opportunity for our young librarians to experience different aspects of librarianship and learn from the experiences of practitioners from across the world."
