“This guide is the result of the cooperation between public libraries of different European countries under the Socrates programme Adult education promoted by the European Commission. From an initial analysis of their respective contexts of operation, the partners came to the realisation that it was necessary to initiate a process of transformation to adapt the offer of the public library to the diversified needs of the public in a changing society: in particular, by fostering access to reading, information and job guidance and training services for people who are disadvantage in society. This could be achieved by consolidating the role of the library as a centre for information and reading in relation to adult education” (Simona Bandino, Eros Cruccolini).
