The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2015, is working around the world to achieve the 17 goals. Governments and other institutions are preparing action plans to implement sustainable development ideas. Libraries are also developing and implementing various schemes to support sustainable development initiatives. It was at this juncture that the COVID-19 pandemic struck in 2020, shaking the social, economic, cultural, educational and healthcare sectors. In this context, sustainable development ideas are of great importance. The situation is such that in the post-COVID-19 era, more and more sustainable development activities have to be undertaken by all. This paper examines what libraries can do to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals after COVID 19.
