Venue | Eesti Rahvusraamatukogu


This year the Summer School will take place in hybrid form - physically and virtually. Please be advised that the physical event is subject to change due to the COVID-19 situation.

Physical venue is the National Library of Estonia (Tõnismägi 2, Tallinn. See on Google Maps). The Library can be easily accessed by car, by public transport and on foot. It is only a short walk away from Tallinn Old Town. It is going to be the last chance to see the Library building as it is today and has been for the last 30 years. Starting from January 2022, its doors will be closed for renovations for up to 4-5 years.

Online event will be hosted over Cisco Webex conferencing platform. For detailed information and guidelines, please refer to to section Online event.

Workshops, if the situation allows, will take place in rooms that have sufficient amount of power outlets for laptops. Public wifi is available in all areas. To attend workshops, each attendee must bring their own laptop. For necessary applications, the organizers will contact the participants prior to the event.

Lunch is not provided, as there are several restaurants, cafes and pubs nearby that have reasonably priced (4-6 €) daily offers. There is also a cafeteria in the Library.



Due to the constraints set by the Estonian government, a valid Covid-19 passport or certificate is needed to attend the physical event of the Summer School. This means that you need to be either

  • fully vaccinated (+15 days from last shot), or

  • recovered from Covid-19, or

  • with a valid negative test result certificate from a healthcare provider (rapid antigen test lasts for 48 hours, PCR test for 72 hours).

Please be advised that all participants, lecturers, staff and caterers have to provide a certificate to the organisers. Since the Summer School is a 4-day event, the certificates will be checked every day and each time you come to the event. Persons who fail to prove their infection safety, cannot participate in the event. 
All participants coming to the National Library of Estonia are advised to come to the entrance reasonably early. Due to that we are opening the doors a bit earlier, already 8:45 am.
