Create culture:
Library Innovative Services

In 2020, the Ukrainian Library Association implements an international project called “Create Culture: Library Innovative Services”, supported by the European Union as a part of the House of Europe program. On a competitive basis, 32 librarians from Ukraine and Belarus were selected and trained by Danish and Ukrainian coaches. As a result of the workshops, each participating librarian developed and implemented a new innovative service for the development of creative industries in their library. These services are presented on the website.

Literary Quotes Print Studio

Transcarpathian Regional Universal Scientific Library named after F. Potushnyak provides the service of printing literary quotes. With the help of this service, everyone is able to transform their favorite quote into their own, original drawing, as well as print it on a sticker or a T-shirt.

“I was inspired to create the service by participating in the international project “Library unites people”. During this project there were 3 meetings with artists held in the library,” says the project’s initiator Yevhenia Napuda.

Eugenia created the design of stickers, postcards and masks at home with her daughter, and then with a colleague in the library. They tested the service during the street action “Kapurkova knyzhka”, where they managed to attract people of different professions and ages.

“Users are interested in such a service because it gives everyone an opportunity to realize their creative potential. During testing, we did not change the concept. I came up with this idea in the winter, and it didn’t change a bit since the project was announced, “- says Eugenia.

The organizer hopes that the library users will be able to use the gained experience in the future, for example, when launching their own designer products or core business.

The service has been working in the library since September 5.
