Castles, Kolacky, and Concertos: A Librarian’s Experiences of Cultural Exchange in the Czech Republic


The Czech Republic may be most famous for pilsners and medieval architecture. But did you know the Czech Republic also has a rich library history? They have the densest public library network in the world, with more than 10 times as many libraries per capita as the US. They also have several library schools. Hannah taught at the Institute for Information Studies and Librarianship at Charles University in Prague during the 2019-2020 academic year as a Fulbright Scholar. She will discuss the Fulbright program, Czech culture and education, and what it’s like to take your family abroad. Sponsored by IRRT (International Relations Round Table).
