22nd meeting-conference of LBB Vidzeme branch

16-17, 2019 The 22nd meeting-conference of the Vidzeme branch of the Latvian Librarians' Association (LBB) “Creative tour for strengthening Vidzeme libraries” will take place in Gulbene, Vecgulbene manor.

The conference is organized by LBB Vidzeme branch in cooperation with Gulbene district library. We are supported by Gulbene municipality, Europe Direct information center in Gulbene, State Culture Capital Fund.

The library is not an institution that performs the same functions. Today, the library is associated with growth, knowledge, new impulses, creativity. In order to increase the quality of library work and promote the growth of librarians, the Vidzeme branch of the LBB invites to take part in a bright adventure. The activities planned in the meeting will delight both those working in the library sector and specialists in related fields.

The first day of the event is divided into 5 tours related to literature, theater, self-growth, exploratory recreation and dance. Literature with Marta Seleckas and Gustavs Terzen will allow to experience the experiences of the leaders of the television program "Literature" during the creation of the program. Theater theater scientist Jānis Siliņš will reveal little-known things about theater in Vidzeme. In the tour of inspiration, getting to know the personality of Kristine Om Shanti , we will try to meet ourselves, find harmony and peace that we are not in this world. On the holiday tour, we will meet the employees of the coffee roastery " Pure Peace " to learn the story of coffee and how to make the best coffee. In the dance tour with Guna Ezermala, we will turn to melodic sounds, steps and revelations about the diversity of dance in different centuries.
