The “Resourcing Libraries: connecting libraries to EU resources” (RL:EU) project aims to help Europe’s public libraries unlock EU resources to support their adult education programmes and strategies. This project brings together Public Libraries 2030, EBLIDA, and PiNA to develop an approach that helps public libraries and librarians learn about EU initiatives and programmes and access EU funding.

As public libraries are the first port of call for many adult learners, this project aims to help develop libraries’ capacities to be forward-looking adult education learning centres through the development of:

  • A platform with best practices and support to find project partners and develop European projects
  • A train-the-trainer methodology enabling librarians to train other librarians on EU programmes and initiatives and EU-funded projects
  • A workbook to help reflection on how libraries play a role as adult learning centres and how these activities can receive EU funds
  • Policy recommendations for EU funding of public libraries

Public Libraries 2030 will lead on the project management and communications for the project as well as support the project’s implementation activities.

This project is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union under the Partnerships for Cooperation in Adult Education (KA220).
