Our library, the Central Public Library of Veria, with its 31.375 registered members (60% of the population of Veria) and 800 daily visitors, is one of the most modern libraries of the world.
In 2010 our library received the, ‘’Access to learning,’’ Award by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation receiving worldwide recognition out of 350 nominations. The prize money which accompanied the award enabled us to offer more and better services to our members. We installed photovoltaic systems to conserve energy, we created the Media Lab on the 1st floor and we upgraded our technological equipment.
The whole project will be completed with the renovation of the 2nd floor, where a state-of-the-art multiple function space will be created. However, the equipment needed to accomplish this requires us to raise the additional amount of 100,000€.
This multiple function hall will be for you, for me, for the citizens of Veria, of the wider prefecture, and even our country, for the artists, the creators, for our children.
But, we need you to make a pledge and be part of this renovation!
Even 1 euro will make a difference.
Together, you and I, will turn on the lights!
