foto 2022 bibliotecaThe Formentera Office of Education and Culture is pleased to announce the award of a grant from the European Union that will allow Libraries of Formentera to purchase nearly €4,307 in paper books.

This endowment will be used exclusively for paper books from local bookstores. The books must deal with subjects related to feminism or LGTBI themes, or be children's books, foreign language study books, local collectors' items or fulfil one of various other requirements. Books must be purchased in the coming eighteen months and they must be incorporated in the library catalogue within the next two years.

"We asked for this grant to supplement the library collection and deliver a boost to local bookstores while taking into account requests from library users", explained Susana Labrador, Councillor of Education and Culture.

Some of the titles already acquired through this fund: Vírgenes, esposas, amantes y putas (Armanda Miller), Presa and Nòmada (Ayaan Hirsi Ali) and Todos deberíamos ser feministas (Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie) for children and family audiences. In anticipation of the first Creative Writing Course and to offer guidance to budding local writers, the Marià Villangómez Library has purchased books like El camino del escritor (Julia Cameron), Escriptura creativa (Víctor Sunyol) and Aquest llibre l'escrius tu (Carlos Garcia Miranda) for young audiences.
