Summary of news in the Sister Libraries Programme

We had three novelties on the blog during the previous week. Firstly, Marines Library “Josefina Escrig” from Spain has sent some pictures of its facilities so that we know them a little better.

Secondly, Krapina Public Library from Croatia has sent a piece of information about the first experiences with its sister libraries, consisting of providing information about the town of Krapina, its history and monuments of culture for library users in Tielt-Winge (Belgium) and Sant Joan de Vilatorrada (Spain).

Finally, there is a new sistership in the Programme between Gustavo Pinto Lopes Public Library, in Torres Novas, Portugal, and Ciudad Real State Public Library from Spain. They will work together in areas such reading promotion, volunteer work, local history and digital resources. Personal contacts, between the staff through technical visits to both premises, are also accorded.
