We are „V.A. Urechia” Public Library from Galati, Romania with an experience of 130 years, providing all library services for a community with approximately 230.000 inhabitants.
We were recognised by IREX Foundation (global development and education organisation) as a "centre of excellence that provides services to adults aged 41 to 60", after having won the "County Libraries: Centres of Excellence" competition organized by IREX and the "Biblionet" programme (a project financed by Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation aiming to equippe librarians with the 21st-century tools and techniques necessary to assess their communities’ needs and provide context-specific services that improved hundreds of thousands of lives). The library implemented a new service dedicated to adults aged 41 to 60 - sessions and practical workshops on different subjects to develop skills and competences.
Our projects so far were financed by: Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Electronic Information for Libraries (EIFL), IREX Foundation, Association of Librarians of Romania (ANBPR).
