If you have an idea, are a public library or are interested in joining the Living Knowledge Network, we'd like to hear from you.

Do you have an idea?

If you are an organisation with a visionary idea about how you could benefit public library users around the UK we’d like to hear from you.

Are you a public library?

If you’re a UK public library service then you can benefit from the work of the Network in a number of ways including hosting a live screening or lending your expertise for a skills-exchange day or webinar. Please contact us to find out more.

Would you like to join the Living Knowledge Network?
