EIFL’s Public Library Innovation Programme (EIFL-PLIP) is ready to launch the second in its exciting series of Innovation Awards, for libraries that improve community health. The call opens on 1 July.
The EIFL-PLIP Innovation Awards are for public and community libraries in developing and transition countries that make a positive impact and difference in the lives of their communities. Winners receive a prize of US$1,500 and the opportunity to showcase their services at an international conference or gathering.
There are hundreds of public and community libraries offering valuable health services – but their stories are hidden. To enter the competition, libraries must tell us the story of their services, showing how they have improved community health. We are accepting applications in four languages - English, French, Russian and Spanish.
EIFL-PLIP will work with the winners to publicize their stories widely, to ensure their contribution is recognized and to inspire other libraries to innovate.
Winners of the first Innovation Award call – for library services that improve economic wellbeing – will be announced in July.
