Participants are invited to register for a spectacular summer program to Prague entitled, “Libraries and Librarianship in the Czech Republic” that will be offered May 23 to June 5, 2010.
There are just a couple of spaces left for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Information and Library Science’s 2010 summer international program. Those participating will see the libraries and facilities at central Europe’s oldest university, Charles University, which was founded in 1348. The lectures provide a broad overview of libraries across the Czech Republic and will be supplemented with tours of libraries and other cultural institutions in Prague and other parts of the Bohemian countryside.
The series of presentations is supplemented by:
- A walking tour of the Old Town (Stare Mesto), Charles Bridge and Wenceslas Square
- A bus tour of historic Prague, including Mala Strana, Nove Mesto, Prague Castle, St. Vitus Cathedral and the Jewish Quarter
- Visit to the Klementinum (National Library)
