Den europæiske lobbyorganisation for biblioteker EBLIDA følger nu op på DBs udmelding om, at alle flygtninge er velkomne på bibliotekerne:
"Throughout Europe, public libraries have a proud tradition of welcoming everyone, regardless of ethnic origin.
Libraries welcome refugees arriving into European countries with plenty of activities for both children and adults, as well as access to information and education.
EBLIDA understands the concerns of some countries in dealing with the refugee crisis and acknowledges that careful consideration requiring governmental measures at European and local level are necessary to facilitate the mass migration.
At the same time, EBLIDA believes that libraries all over Europe should act as a platform for democratic and open-minded values, and be a safe place where social inclusiveness for all is a priority."
