For many years Aarhus Public Libraries have attracted library staff, architects and designers from all over the world to Aarhus to discuss the library of the future within the framework of the Next Library concept. Now the world wants to adopt the brand in co-operation around library development.

Every second-year participants from over 35 countries travel to Aarhus to discuss trends, developments and innovation in libraries. The Next Library concept has now become an attractive brand that many countries want to implement. In 2014 Chicago borrowed the brand and in September 2018 Berlin got the opportunity to hold a Next Library Satellite conference. Next stop is the State Library of Queensland in Australia in 2020.

 Aarhus Public Libraries are recognized world-wide for their ability to be in front of library development. Our libraries and the Next Library brand have become identical with innovation and development. It is a brand that gathers the best brains from all over the world to discuss how libraries can continue to improve their services to the public,” says Alderman for Culture and Citizens’ Services, Rabih Azad-Ahmad.

For many years Aarhus Public Libraries have had  strong and wide international co-operation – a co-operation that among other things have contributed to the development for Dokk1. And in Australia, Next Library is considered an opportunity to further develop libraries and services for the people.

The State Library of Queensland is excited to have the opportunity to work with Aarhus Public Libraries, a recognised world class innovator, to deliver the Next Library Satellite meeting 2020 in Brisbane. Aarhus Public Libraries is acknowledged internationally for its outstanding work in imagining, planning and delivering outstanding public library services,” says Vicki McDonald, State Librarian and Chief Executive Officer

Ms McDonald says that the Satellite meeting in 2020 also allows State Library of Queensland to take a leadership role in exploring and implementing innovative programming in libraries globally.

"Hosting the Next Library Satellite meeting in Brisbane will enable more Australians to participate in this gathering of international professionals.  It will also allow State Library of Queensland to showcase the amazing work of Australian libraries to international colleagues,” says Vicki McDonald.
