Libraries tell impact stories
We take pleasure in sharing impact assessment results of two public library services funded by EIFL’s Public Library Innovation Programme (EIFL-PLIP).
Read about how –
- Lyuben Karavelov Regional Library in Bulgaria helped 44 long-term unemployed people aged over 40 find jobs.
- Zagreb City Libraries in Croatia created new opportunities for support for the homeless, and helped 22 homeless people find employment.
In November 2011, EIFL-PLIP funded 14 public libraries to implement innovative services by using information and communication technology (ICT) to meet community needs. A year later, the libraries assessed the impact of their services. Here, we profile two services that show how public libraries improve community economic wellbeing by contributing to employment.
Over the next three weeks we will be publishing case studies that show how public library services contribute to community health, improve agriculture and farmers’ lives, and support vulnerable children and youth at risk.
