The goal of this project is to furnish the Pedagogical School of Peshkopia with a functioning library – a quality functioning library. Unfortunately, the existing library (a locked room with useless books) is of no educational value. It contains dusty old books from the Communist era. The Communist regime was not known for its tolerance towards ideas or literature – the existing library at the school is a testament to that. Fortunately, in the years since the acceptance of political pluralism, a plethora of foreign books have been translated into the Albanian language. The requested $5,700.00 will be invested in various reference resources and books (in the Albanian language) and will not be spent on infrastructure or other library needs. These needs will be addressed by the community. They include: reconstruction / expanding of current library facilities; equipping library with new shelves, tables and chairs; painting of the library; transportation costs of books / materials; and creating a library system.
