The European Children’s Travelling Language Library http://www.eulib.eu/ is a European Union funded education project. It is targeted at children who have recently started to learn a foreign language to:
- Exposure them to the rich heritage of European languages and cultures
- Be motivated to learn languages
- Build a love of reading as the best form of autonomous lifelong learning
- Reinforce emerging literacy
Travelling libraries of the most beautifully illustrated children’s books in six European languages (English, Spanish, Turkish, Italian, Czech and Finnish) travel from school to school across Europe. Each school keeps the library for a period and has to carry out a number of educational and collaborative activities before, during, and after the visit of the Library.
The Eurolibs have been used in schools across Europe with great success.
Using the Libraries
The Eurolib libraries and the pedagogic resources are now complete and ready for schools across Europe to use. You can download the documents about using the libraries at: http://www.eulib.eu/teacher_manual.html and book a visit of the library (you will need to pay for transport).
