In just one year (2010/11), the library’s 'Creative Minds Create Job Opportunities' service helped 39 people find work – almost half their total number of trainees. The library works in the municipalities of Radovis and Konce and builds jobseekers’ confidence, job application and ICT skills. The library also brings jobseekers and employers together through a website where jobseekers market their skills and employers advertise positions. In 2011the service won international recognition and an award for social integration from the ERSTE Foundation.

The library's service was initiated with support from the EIFL Public Library Innovation Programme (EIFL-PLIP) in 2010. This two-case study is based on reports and impact assessment received by the library in 2011.
