Castro Marim takes books and music to those who live isolated

With this initiative, the municipality "intends to bring the library to the people"

Castro Marim takes books and music to those who live more isolated. This is a project that wants to promote the fight against loneliness that has been so accentuated “in these periods of confinement necessary to fight Covid-19”. 

«Seeking to reinvent the traditional concept of library and adapting the dynamics of communication with its public to the pandemic situation, Bibliomóvel appears as the best way to bring people together and win new readers», says the Câmara de Castro Marim.

With this initiative, the municipality “intends to bring the library to the people, inverting its usual functioning, from the outside to the inside. The challenge for the team, composed of elements from the Municipal Library and from the CLDS 4G project “Castro Marim (COM)Vida”, is to double the number of readers/users of the Municipal Library».

The promotion of activities, suggestions and tips to occupy this population's free time is another of the challenges of the initiative, which will be developed by CLDS 4G. Thus, some ideas will be presented, such as painting or sewing activities, which will then be followed up throughout the visits.

In parallel with the invitation to read, Bibliomóvel takes music, also available in the Municipal Library's documentary background, from fado, through classical music, to the so traditional and cherished accordion.

«At each stop, the inhabitants will be able to meet and enjoy a good musical selection, which they can then request», guarantees the municipality.

Bibliomóvel will also bring an automatic payment terminal, facilitating some payments for services to the elderly population of the mountains and avoiding their displacement to areas where there is greater risk.

Moreover, while public spaces do not open again, you can request your book by contacting the Municipal Library on 281 510 747.

The CLDS 4G project “Castro Marim (COM)Vida” is promoted by the Municipality of Castro Marim and coordinated by the Odiana association, co-financed by CRESC Algarve 2020, Portugal 2020 and the European Union, through the European Social Fund.
