EIFL’s Public Library Innovation Programme (PLIP) welcomes the news that Regional public and university library Goce Delchev-Stip is replicating the award-winning PLIP-funded ‘Creative Minds Create Job Opportunities’ service of Public Library Braka Miladinovci in Radovis.
‘We were inspired by the Creative Minds Create Job Opportunities service. The library staff from Radovis and their partner organizations gave us a lot of advice and help,’ said Ms Vilma Jovanova, coordinator of the new service in Stip.
Titled ‘An educated woman is a powerful woman’, the new service in Stip both replicates ‘Creative Minds Create Job Opportunities’ and takes the idea further. In addition to building jobseekers’ confidence, job-seeking and computer skills, the library in Stip will create a resource centre for other public libraries in Macedonia that want to provide similar services for the unemployed. The new service has received support from the United States Embassy.
Regional public and university library Goce Delchev-Stip serves Stip, which is the largest city in Eastern Macedonia (population 50,000), and the nearby municipality of Karbinci. In addition to serving the general public, the library recently began providing special services to university students. Stip is home to a large university and there are 10,000 university students living in the city.
