Computer Center of Cultural Roots[Gemeenetebibliotheek Utrecht , Netherlands]
The library is a stage for different cultural activities. In collaboration with groups of volunteers from the different communities, activities like writer evenings are organized for groups from Turkey, Suriname, Morocco and China. Due to the intensive cooperation with almost all primary schools in the city, the library succeeded in raising the percentage of youth members in the different cultural groups to the same high level. To attract more adults from these groups, a marketing plan was implemented, including special commercials on the local television network and cooperation with mosques and groups of volunteers.
