The OLA project starts from the need to improve the skills of the staff employed in libraries. All the partners believe in the importance of public libraries as modern learning hubs close to citizens and potential learners.Today, the modern library has the opportunity to influence the culture and thinking of people; to play an active role in the formation of their values and attitudes towards current problems, in particular integration processes and intercultural dialogue.
The general objective of the project is to improve the quality of services provided by libraries through the enhancement of the European dimension in participating organisations.
The specific objectives of the project are:
1 Enhance the key competences and transversal skills of staff which will help address more effectively the intercultural challenges;
2 To develop the European dimension of the organisations by: improving the skills of the staff on Erasmus+ and learning mobility; building strong relations with European partners, gaining confidence with the processes of mobility project and their vocabulary.
3 To increase the professional competences of librarians thanks to the transfer of practices and know-how from other European countries and training activities.
