Library Fair (Japan) & “Connect the World via libraries” project

The Library Fair (図書館総合展) is Japan’s biggest exhibition on the theme of libraries, having started in 1999. Before Covid it was held annually in a convention center in Yokohama each November. Due to Covid it has changed to a hybrid style event, with online and small meetings in local venues.

In November 2022, four special online sessions will be conducted, both in English and Japanese, as part of an international project titled “Connect the World via libraries”. This project has been designed by HKSKH Ming Hua Theological College (聖公會明華神學院) with Japanese parties (Library Fair Committee, Rapidswide company) and the Charles Sturt University Libraries Research Group.

Capacity for each session: 90 online audience members. First come – first served.  Free of charge


A zoom link will be emailed to registered participants near the date of the session.
