Information about the project

The project “A library for everyone. Lodz, Gdynia, Cracow, Bergen – different cities, a common idea. Increasing access to culture – model Polish and Norwegian solution.” represents a collaboration of four socially-engaged libraries, namely:

  • the Muncipal Library of Lodz – project leader,
  • the Metropolitan Public Library of Gdynia,
  • the Regional Public Library in Cracow,
  • the Bergen Offentlige Bibliotek.

Each city has in place a number of activities for their residents, migrants and excluded groups. During the project, the following will be organised, including

  • meetings,
  • multicultural walks with foreign-speaking guides,
  • Polish language classes for children and adults,
  • cyclical advice-oriented activities for migrants,
  • family picnics,
  • art and culinary workshops,
  • film screenings.

Additionally, what will happen during the project will be the purchase of foreign-language books and textbooks for learning Polish.
Our goal is to demonstrate libraries open to everyone, free from prejudices, stereotypes and discrimination whatsoever. We want a library to be a place where migrants will have an opportunity to get specific help, both in a legal and less formal form.
