European Voluntary Service (EVS) is the European Commission’s programme (currently in the frame of Erasmus+) that allows a young person (18–30 years) to become a volunteer in another country for a specified period, normally between 2–12 months”.
An EVS project involves a triangular partnership: a volunteer, a sending organisation and a host organisation. Municipal Public Library in Piekary Slaskie is a host and coordinating organization since January 2013, registered with the code 2012-PL-175.
Today, Aleksandra Zawalska-Hawel, director of the Library sends us some information about EVS seen through the eyes of volunteers working in the Library: they’ve hosted four volunteers, two from Spain, one from Ukraine and another one from Denmark, who have written a text about their experience. You can read the text, titled “Volunteering in the library – it’s a good choice!” here:
And see some pictures Aleksandra is sending to illustrate this experience:
