Development demands access to information and technology, support to use it, and physical spaces to connect with others. Beyond Access is a movement of people and organizations committed to the idea that modern public libraries help drive economic and social development. More than 230,000 public libraries — 73% of the world’s total — are located in developing and transitioning countries. At a time of tight budgets, investing in existing, trusted, and local institutions is efficient and smart. With members around the world, Beyond Access encourages dialogue, assembles a community, facilitates partnerships, creates and curates resources, and provides services and opportunities to libraries, NGOs, development practitioners, donors, and governments.

Beyond Access is an initiative of IREX, EIFL, IFLA, Makaia, Facilitating Change, Development Gateway, The Asia Foundation, TASCHA, the Riecken Foundation, and READ Global, with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Learn more at BeyondAccess.net.
