Exciting award opportunity for libraries promoting social inclusion
Innovative libraries! Don’t miss this opportunity!
EIFL’s Public Library Innovation Programme (EIFL-PLIP) is inviting applications for a new award – for innovative library services that contribute to social inclusion in the community.
The award, which includes a prize of US$1,500, is open to public and community libraries in developing and transition countries. The deadline for submitting applications is November 30, so start preparing your application now!
EIFL-PLIP is accepting applications in English, French, Russian and Spanish.
Many economic and social risk factors can lead to social exclusion, for example, distance, under-development, poverty, homelessness, unemployment, poor health, disability, illiteracy, age, cultural differences, addiction, racism and gender inequality.
By taking the initiative, and using information and communication technology (ICT) in creative ways, libraries can reach out to socially excluded groups and strengthen social cohesiveness.
This is the third award in EIFL-PLIP’s series of four Innovation Awards. The aim of the awards is to share stories about the positive impact of innovative library services and to inspire other libraries to start similar services.
