Fun time at IFLA: you missed the beach – don’t miss this! 

Yes, there was a beach session in Athens – right before the official start of the conference, the famous unconference brought librarians to aopen session on the beach. If you missed it, mark your calendars for Dublin 2020 and look up the IFLAcamp! 

Luckily, the fun part of the conference is not over. Besides the trending topics, stellar sessions, and incredible networking that you are able to explore during the IFLA WLIC 2019, boost your energy with out-of-the-box experiences!
