LLI-422 Strengthening families by means of libraries’ cooperation as contribution to socio-economic growth in Ludza municipality, Rokiškis district and Jēkabpils City (HOME)

The modern library is a multipurpose place and institution. People not only search for information in library, they look for communication and information. It provides them information necessary for work, family, leisure, health, etc. As libraries are place, where information about all local processes is kept, they possess great potential for reduction of social exclusion in their municipalities.

The objective of the project is to facilitate socio-economic activity of residents of Ludza (Latvia), Rokiškis (Lithuania) and Jēkabpils (Latvia) municipalities thus contributing to the improvement of living conditions in the border region of Latvia and Lithuania – in 3 deprived municipalities, which are remote from large development centres, with low birth and high death rates and low level of income. It will be achieved by cooperation between Ludza, Rokiškis and Jēkabpils libraries. Libraries offering comfortable and pleasant conditions for families will be a place for socialisation and communication and where people can feel equal.

Ludza Town Library, Rokiškis District Municipal Library and Jēkabpils City Library will intensify their work with families as small “societies” in the local society: they will widen the range of age of their visitors and will provide family-friendly conditions in their premises. The libraries will introduce attractive, entertaining and educational Family Time activities, when any parent, family can take part and learn something new in various topics. In total, the libraries will organise 114 Family Times.

Two big joint family festivals will be organised in Ludza and Rokiškis with participation of local families with children. In order to learn more how to work with different generations librarians will take part in 3 joint seminars and in a study trip to libraries in Helsinki, Finland.

A gaming platform HOME will be jointly created giving access for anyone to information about Ludza, Rokiškis and Jēkabpils in the form of a game.

The libraries will improve their technical equipment: they will purchase laptops, interactive displays, games and toys for children of different age as well as furniture. Ludza and Jēkabpils libraries will acquire baby changing stations. Rokiškis library premises will be repaired to ensure more comfortable environment for visitors.
