1-10 May 2012, Targu Jiu , Romania

Description:The project “My Library in Young European People’s World” aims at awakening Romanian young people’s awareness regarding the part the Library plays in their lives and at reducing their disbelief in this public institution. 30 young people, age 18 to 25 from 5 European countries, will share the experience they have with their libraries and the outcome will be a change in perception towards .Library and towards their interaction with people of their age.

All these things gain a new dimension due to the intercultural character of the project.

A variety of non-formal educational tools as workshops, role plays, trips, simulations, competitions, seminars, information and promotion campaign will be used and will ensure the success of the project.
