... different cities, a common idea A library for everyone

Project goal

Library for everyone is a space open for everybody regardless of their language, culture or tradition. This is why we’re planning intercultural communication training sessions for librarians from partner libraries. This will allow us to break through barriers when contacting national and ethnic minorities as well as foreigners. Libraries will become more open to otherness both in the cultural and social aspects.

We will learn about national and ethnic minorities in Poland, their diversity, culture, tradition. Through planned classes, workshops and trainings we will gather knowledge and skills in multiculturalism, cultural differences, stereotypes, prejudice and discrimination.
