Call for projects – The presented projects at the workshops

We are pleased to announce varied projects from all over Europe. Today, “Library Development Program” (Workshop III):

The Library Development Program is a nationwide project aimed at strengthening the potential of public libraries located in villages and small towns. Thanks to the program, modern and active libraries make it easier for residents to participate in social and economic life.
The Library Development Program is implemented by the Information Society Development Foundation (FRSI). The funds come from a grant received by the Polish-American Freedom Foundation of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and are earmarked for providing libraries with IT equipment, a cycle of practical training courses, strengthening the librarian profession and promoting libraries.
The program is designed as a five-year project: it started in 2009 and will last until 2013. It will cover more than half of all the libraries located in villages and small towns: more than 3,300 libraries

The project will be presented by Jacek Królikowski, Information Society Development Foundation, Poland
