Creativity and the Library

The Galway Ensemble in Residence, The Con Tempo String Quartet, performed this week in Portumna, Ballinasloe and Gort Libraries.

They provided the kind of experience for the public which Thomas Rehak, the Chief Librarian of the Municipal Library in Prague, referred to when he spoke at the MetLib Conference in New York last week.

Tomas Rehak said:

"The Public Library must be a place where people want to be. They must be beautiful spaces...places where people can meet"

  • We should support creativity
  • We should inspire creativity
  • We should promote creativity
  • We should facilitate creativity

Libraries supporting those who want to understand the World and themselves
