The International Book Arsenal Festival and the all-Ukrainian non-governmental organization Ukrainian Library Association invite libraries from all over the world to join the online program of the anniversary 10th Book Arsenal Festival.
To intellectually activate local communities around their libraries, to draw attention to the Ukrainian book publishing and foreign translations of the Ukrainian literature, and to feel involved in the coolest literary event in Ukraine. Residents of local communities from different parts of Ukraine and the world will be able to visit the Festival as online visitors and join the viewing and discussion of events.
Ukrainian diaspora libraries or local libraries that already have (or are going to have) a shelf with translations of Ukrainian books. To participate in the Project, the library must have the necessary equipment: plasma, speakers, and microphone.
The Project participants will choose from the online program of Book Arsenal (over 60 events) those events that will be the most relevant to them. And on the basis of the selected events, they will have to develop a separate program for their visitors, as well as to organize a review of these events and discussions with local opinion leaders and library visitors. In the end, participants will share their results and opinions on their social networks and with Book Arsenal.
From June 10 to 21, 2021, the Organizing Committee for the Project will choose and award the most active participating libraries.
