For the #ErasmusDays2018, the EPALE teams wished to raise awareness about the European Union commitment in adult lifelong learning. They created a digital exhibition with 22 different projects, demonstrating the variety of practices across Europe.

The project “Library. I love it!” consisted of cooperation between eight city libraries from all Europe. The project focused on the role of libraries in the life of contemporary European citizens. It presented libraries not just as places where it is possible to borrow books but as important centres of lifelong learning. The aim of the project was to develop knowledge, abilities and skills that would ensure the personal, social and professional growth of librarians. This helped the perception of European libraries as interesting and attractive places, which also offer further and civic education. Each of the partners participated in the project and set up a meeting that consisted of three parts:
Show off! - examples of key activities of the host country in the field of lifelong learning.
Learn! - workshops, seminars or demonstrations of good practices and approaches.
Look! - visits to places that are broadly related to education.
This way of exchanging experience and good practice proved to be very effective during the implementation of the project, and it was also beneficial for all involved organizations.
