Librarians at Pasvalys Marius Katiliskis Public Library have opened their new Desktop Publishing Centre to help farmers promote and advertise their produce.
When the library announced that a desktop publishing unit was in the pipeline, farmers flooded the library with questions and there was intense pressure to open the centre quickly. In just a month, the centre attracted regular 15 users.
Free access to computers for desktop publishing is part of the library’s new LIBR-A service, which uses information and communication technology (ICT) to improve farmers’ livelihoods. In the new centre, librarians train farmer to design leaflets, advertisements and business cards, which are printed in the library.
In addition to desktop publishing, the LIBR-A service teaches farmers to use their smart phones to link up with the library’s new agricultural website (www.pasvaliodirva.lt), to advertise their produce online and to decode QR Codes.
