During the three-day long meeting the invited guests can get to know each other’s best practices and research results by the introduction of the Hungarian and international partners. Further aim of the program is to establish long-term cooperation.
Since 2010, the Department’s associates also use a 13 m Mercedes saddle tractor ‘Library Bus’ to supply inhabitants thanks to the “TIOP-1.2.3-08/1-2008-0021 Library Bus Project”- in 28 settlements by 2011.
The exact name of the project is ”Procurement of a Library Bus for the Csorba Győző Library in favour of the supply of disadvantaged groups living in municipalities” TIOP-1.2.3-08/1-2008-0021. The amount of subsidy given by the European Union and the Hungarian State is 99.999.167 HUF.
We visit the required settlements in every 2 weeks, reach 3 settlements a day, and there’s 1.5 hour opening time in each settlement. We supply from Thursday to Sunday on odd weeks and from Wednesday to Sunday on even weeks.
