The European children’s traveling language library - EU project

r.e. The European Children’s Travelling Language Library


Eurolib is a European Union funded education project. It is targeted at motivating children in their first year of learning a foreign language, to:

  • Exposure them to the rich heritage of European languages and cultures
  • Build a love of reading as the best form of autonomous lifelong learning
  • Reinforce emerging literacy

Travelling libraries of beautifully illustrated children's books in six European languages (English, Spanish, Turkish, Italian, Czech and Finnish) will 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.


Initial piloting of the project has been hugely successful with the children pleading to take the library books home.


Booking the Library

If you are working in a school in the Czech Republic, Finland, Italy, Spain, Turkey and the UK, you can now show your interest in booking a visit of the library to your school by completing the ‘Get Involved’ form on the website. There is no charge during the life of the project.


You can also join our community on Facebook were you can find updates about the project and join in discussions.


Global Association

Schools in other countries will be able to use the library by helping to form Eurolib networks in their countries. These will be part of a World Association that will be formed at the end of the project. If you are interested in the using the Eurolib in your country please let us know via the ‘Get Involved’ form.


I look forward to you booking the Eurolib library for your students.

More Than a Sport: A Look at Scootering’s Evolution

Too many people do not have a clear idea about what is a Scooter; and much less than there is a sport based on it. Besides, it is a sport that has evolved a lot from its beginning, but if you do not know too much about the sport is hard to see it as more than a kid game.However, this sport is more than just kids and young people making scooter tricks in a square; scootering is a kind of culture and a lifestyle that has more than 20 years growing to become what it is today.For this reason, we…See More

"My preference is this website is best. Twitter is used for social purpose and EDUPLN is used for professional discussion which you cannot discuss on social platforms."
