The article discusses a proposal for library law put forward in Erfurt, Germany on May 29, 2008. Two thirds of the 27 countries in the European Union have passed national laws concerning the purpose, standards, and financing of their nation's libraries. The library organization Bundesvereinigung der Deutschen Bibliotheks- und Informationsverbände (BID) recognized the proposal but requested that municipalities be required to support public libraries.
