School is the only place where we meet our friends. There is no alternative cultural or entertainment spaces beyond the school in our village: no library, no gym, no cinema for more than 300 schoolchildren at Garikula and villages nearby.
We realized that if we want different environment, we should make changes. Our aim is to make our lives better, more interesting and colorful. That’s why we decided to create what we need most of all – library.
“The Library of the Future” is a title we gave to our space and we deeply hope that step by step we’ll make a splendid collection of different books. But on the other hand, we strongly believe that books are not and shouldn’t be the only source of education. “The Library of the Future” is a special place to hold various events, meetings, workshops, master classes, screenings, discussions that will give us chance to meet people of different professions, experiences, views and adventures.
Indigo Publishing has supported us with getting access to and repairing two large rooms in historical building of Garikula – Tsereteli Palace. Publishing Houses, organizations and individuals donated books, computer, money. Now we have more than 300 books. Four workshops and meetings have been already held.
The Library of the Future is open but it has to be enriched with more books. In order to turn it into a center of informal education it has to satisfy the interests of local youth at Garikula and villages nearby. Therefore we have classified our interests in 5 main groups and made a list of activities at the Library of the Future according to this classification:
• Public lectures, master classes and seminars with leading of different fields’ professionals and experts
• Film screenings and discussions
• Educational events for elementary school pupils, like: fiction reading and writing; fancy-work
• To advocate for changes and organize campaigns
List of Lectures/Workshops/Master Classes/ Presentations:

Digital Epoch and virtual Space
Who is a Media Engineer?
Contemporary models of Political Systems

Contemporary Systems of Education

A working group will be formed to complete the plan. We will make an events calendar for 1 year to include the above activities. We will spread the information about each activity in school and in public spaces of Garikula using advertising posters. We will use social media to attract more people.
The Library of the Future will be the space that enlarges the horizons, gives skills, teaches to social responsibility and obliges to respect different opinions.
Our youth will become more aware of the important, actual social issues. They will be actively involved in the process of discussion and will learn to accentuate the main problems and always search for the ways to solve them.
