Library on wheels

Another example of good practices, this time in libraries serving rural areas: a “library on wheels” offers, along with library materials, individual guidance to apply for grants and training to use ICT. The library also developed the web-portal “Agrokorner”, with links to information about subsidies, support agencies and articles about farming methods.

The Regional public and university library “Goce Delcev”, in Macedonia, is the responsible for this programme, that has led to a 20% increase in the number of farmers applying for agricultural production grants in 2012 in the municipalities of Stip and Karbinci in Eastern Macedonia.
