The main goal of the Learning circles in libraries project was to make it easier for adults to access useful online content, help them study effectively and improve their lifelong learning skills.

The main activity aimed at achieving this goal was to implement in libraries the so called ‘learning circles’, understood as groups of people who meet regularly in the library to learn something together. People who participate in them use online courses available, free-of-charge, on the Internet, share their knowledge and experiences, and learn from each other, being supported by the learning circle’s facilitator. Facilitators don’t need to have expert knowledge – such knowledge comes from courses and other online resources, as well as from the community of learners.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the development of which took place during the project implementation, an additional goal of the project was added: to prepare facilitators of learning circles to organize and run engaging online meetings.
