Grantee libraries from the first two phases of EIFL’s Public Library Innovation Programme (PLIP) will share learning at the grantee meeting in Ljubljana (Slovenia) this month.
Over 30 librarians from Africa, Latin America and Europe will attend the meeting -- the first between grantees from the two phases of EIFL-PLIP. The meeting presents an exciting opportunity for librarians from different parts of the world to meet each other and to exchange ideas, knowledge and experiences.
It is also an important induction for the 14 libraries awarded EIFL-PLIP replication grants in November 2011, as part of EIFL-PLIP’s second phase. The 14 new grantee libraries are implementing community development services in the areas of agriculture, support for vulnerable children and youth, employment services and health.
Key sessions will be led by librarians representing three EIFL-PLIP Phase One grantee libraries, who implemented successful community development services during 2010-2011. The three libraries are from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Macedonia. They will share their experiences of working with community groups and provide guidance for the 14 new grantees who are replicating their services.
The busy agenda also includes capacity building in the areas of communication, impact assessment and advocacy, and site visits to the Ljubljana City Library, the Radovljica Public Library, and the Kranj City Library (the newest Slovenian library building).
