Refugees at libraries
The workshop began with a two-part motivational lecture, the first part of which was given by Anne Barckow (Bücherhallen Hamburg, a private foundation that runs public libraries in Hamburg). She is a lector and head of the department of intercultural services, languages and pedagogy, as well as a member of the Committee on Intercultural Library Work of the German Library Association (dbv). She has been especially active in providing library services for refugees over the past 1.5 years.
Britta Schmedemann, who presented the second part of the lecture, has worked for Stadtbibliothek Bremen (Bremen Public Libraries) since 2009. At Stadtbibliothek Bremen, she has specialized in library work with adults since 2013. Within this role, she initiated for example the “media boxes” to encourage the participation of refugees.
