The project takes the form of an educational series, which consists of workshops, webinars and other forms of online work, supplemented by a study visit, during which we will present experiences and best practices of Warsaw institutions in the field of education and culture. After completion of the workshop, the participants of our project will be able to test the newly acquired skills – to play the role of trainers for a group of librarians. With the support of their teachers they will prepare the training scenarios for librarians, tailored to the realities of their country.

The last part of the project will be a librarians study visit during which they will get acquainted with the most interesting examples of the activities of their Polish colleagues.
