  • One annual Seminar on a chosen topic, aimed at all the librarians in the UK. Next event is Friday, 6th December 2019
  • Eurotoolbox: A special collection of literature for children and youths in French, English, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese and Spanish, put together by the respective European Institutes’ librarians, is offered to acquisition librarians who are interested in promoting European languages to young people. The collection is a FREE loan for professional librarians to borrow for two weeks or more at a time.
