Public Libraries 2020 Project

Public Libraries 2020 is a project helping 65,000 European libraries change lives by building stronger local communities. On the project’s YouTube channel you can see examples of how creative libraries can be in implementing the goal. On of the most interesting ideas comes from Astra Sibiu County Library, Romania. The cozy library was being set up in a Marpod county, and wants to transform dusty, disregarded places into modern knowledge hubs “where everyone from the community feels welcome to learn and share.”

Anca Vasilescu, Librarian at the Astra Sibiu County Library, explains the idea behind “the concept library”: transforming dusty places into modern knowledge hubs where everyone from the community feels welcome to learn and share. “People help create a communal living room”, she says. Sebastian Dotcos, Mayor of Marpod, is very happy with the role his local library has in the community and explains it is the place where all local groups and associations have their meetings.
