We're excited to have hosted a brand new event in an inspiring venue - g4g in the community at the European Parliament!!
Together with Rockwell Automation, we teamed up with Public Libraries 2020 to invite 25 special girls aged 11-15 for an afternoon of learning & showcasing cutting-edge technology all while sharing the importance of libraries as modern learning & technology hubs!
Our afternoon event was part the “Smart Cities, Smart Citizens, Smart Libraries” Generation Code exhibition - part of the EU Code Week - where they shared how future technologies are interacting with libraries across Europe.
