Description

 preserving, digitizing and accessing all forms of children's and young adults’ cultural heritage

Children’s and young adults’ culture exists in multiple forms and media, from nursery rhymes and oral storytelling to videogames, from printed books to eBooks...

Libraries play a key role in preserving this cultural heritage and in giving access to it. How are they doing this? What must they do now so that this heritage is not lost and cultural diversity is preserved? How are they giving young people access to their cultural heritage?
