The Occupy Library Innovators Hub aims to bring together organizations that help the development of communities through innovative services implemented in libraries, to share best practices and build a support network in the region. Building on existing regional professional connections of libraries, this project contributes to the development of partnerships of CSOs and libraries that will learn about the opportunities of development, plan for systemic interventions for modernizing public institutions, and ensure long term sustainability of interventions at community level.
The goal of this endeavor is to provide support for CSOs and public libraries to contribute effectively to the well being and life-long learning in their communities through innovative approaches in education and culture projects. Moreover, by implementing the project in 4 countries and creating a community of practice among innovators from CSOs and libraries, this project aimed at bringing these organizations from the region into a network that works together with the Black Sea NGO Forum Culture and Education Working Group to cross pollinate ideas and implement shared regional projects.
