Another message from Watermael-Boitsfort (Brussels)
"On March 17, 2018 we are organising a bike travel festival in Boitsfort. The one-day programme will include films, workshops/conferences and exhibition stands.
There will be a session about activists who travel by bike with Dynamobile and Climate Express. It will be a +/- 50 minutes session during which each group will present its goals, practical organisation and how biking is used for advocacy. Presentations will be followed by a discussion with the audience.
Cycling for Libraries Belgium is invited to join this session!
We'll keep you informed!
General information about the festival can be found on the website :
Delphine and Colette, our friends from Watermael-Boitsfort (Brussels), published an article about C4L in "Les Chemins du Rail".
You can read it here.
On Monday evening December 4, 2017 the Ghent Library School organizes the fourth edition of the 'Bib Web Awards'. These are awards for deserving digital practices and tools from the Flemish library, documentation and information sector.
Cycling for Libraries Belgium is nominated in the category 'Groot gezien'
(= 'Broadly seen': best non-local digital projects). Excellent choice: non-local: that's exactly what we wanted to be!
The selection of the nominees was made by a group of students.
A combination of audience (50%) and jury votes (50%) will determine the final result in each category.
Anyway, it gives us a good opportunity to 'spread the word' and to make some exta publicity for Cycling for Libraries!
More information about the Bib Web Awards (#bibwa2017) can be found through the following channels:

What happened to your book?
Five meditations on beauty by François Cheng.
This book is now the property of a sympathetic librarian in Trois-Ponts.
Quotation; “ Une seule règle me guide: ne rien négliger de ce que la vie comporte, ne jamais se dispenser d’écouter les autres et de penser par soi-même.
Well… I forgot my backpack (with my book, my camera and other things) in the hostel at Eupen. In the meantime I could retrieve it, so the book is back where it came from: in Ghent.
It found a new home in ‘De Frietketel’ ('best Belgian Fries of Flanders!), on a bookshelf in the dining room…
Books and fries: a Belgian combination!
I brought a bike map and gave it to Isabelle at Trois-Ponts as a thank you gift
‘Informatie aan Zee’ is a biennial Flemish library congres that takes place in Oostende. We had a C4L-stand in the congress hall. We invited participants to take a ride on our two exercise bikes, telling them all they wanted to know about the tour
Wednesday evening I took the train from Genk to Trois-Ponts, where I had left my car. It was a journey back in time. The train stopped in Diepenbeek, Bilzen, Tongeren and Liège, where I took a last picture of 'Liège together'!
