Baku is hosting the 27th Annual Meeting of the Conference of European National Librarians (CENL) today.
The fact this conference is being held in Baku is a big event. Moreover, it coincides with the 90th anniversary of the National Library, Director of M.F. Akhundov National Library Kerim Tahirov said.
According to him, heads of European national libraries are attending the meeting.
He also stressed that Azerbaijan has been actively involved in CENL activities since 2003 and is ready to continue holding them in Baku.
CENL president Bruno Racine said agreements on cooperation must be signed between the organisation and libraries.
"Almost all libraries have problems with budgets," he added. "We should try to solve this problem and this issue must be discussed."
