Model libraries for young people in Poland
Mediateka and Planeta 11 – Knowledge and information for young people
In 2004, libraries for young people opened in two Polish cities, Wroclaw and Olsztyn. The libraries offer access to information of specific interest to youngsters, teach reading and information skills, and contribute to promoting learning, career advising and everyday management.
Project duration: March 1, 2002, to February 8, 2007
On November 26, 2008, Polish Culture Minister Bogdan Zdrojewski presented this year’s Polish Culture Prize to the Bertelsmann Stiftung in the Royal Palace in Warsaw. The award, given in recognition of the foundation’s creation of a media center targeting young patrons in Wroclaw, was accepted by Katharina Rejdak and Anette Stein. The media center, known as the Mediateka, first opened its doors in 2004 and was the first such facility in Poland to target young people. The prize was awarded in the category of “Idea Donors.” During the award ceremony, the innovative concept was praised as having created a new direction of thought among Poland’s libraries.
