ABOUT THE RESOURCE
Every year EIFL invites public and community libraries in developing and transition countries to apply for an EIFL Public Library Innovation Award. The calls highlight important community development issues and recognize innovative uses of digital technology in services that improve people’s lives.
This brochure, based on a feature article published in EIFL’s 2021 Annual Report, celebrates the 10th anniversary of the awards. It highlights a selection of the many innovative library services that have won awards over the years, and describes how they are improving people’s lives by contributing to economic development, social inclusion, community health, education, and by rising to the challenges of supporting communities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
