In February 2017, the New Professionals Section of the Library Association of Latvia started a project “Librarians Around the World”. Where librarians were asked to take part in adventure and to write about themselves, their libraries, library system, education opportunities, library related organization, etc. There were many responses received from all over the world. 46 librarians from 27 countries applied: Armenia, Bangladesh, Estonia, Finland, France, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Netherland, Nigeria, Philippines, Qatar, Serbia, Slovenia, South Korea, Sweden, Thailand, Turkey, the United States of America, India, Myanmar, Tanzania, Ukraine, Spain, Slovakia, Vietnam, and New Zealand. There are 19 articles from 34 librarians published in the e-book. We plan to translate e-book in Latvian and we are open to cooperation to translate it to any other language.
