The largest public library in the Czech Republic, 42 branches, more than 150,000 registered readers, 3 creative centers, development of new services and community functions.


Cooperation with low-threshold clubs

Typ: Community Kids

Field workers regularly visit the branches in Lužiny, Černý Most, Chodov, Opatov (Ymcárium) and Zahradní Město (Decima), making themselves available to children and teenagers. They offer them active leisure time, help and support in difficult situations, and inform them about the activities of nearby low-threshold centres and clubs. These activities help prevent negative social phenomena in places with low social control, mitigate the effects of environmental disadvantage and connect the library with social services.
