The library in Marmande has as amongst many goals to provide free and unlimited access to knowledge, culture, information and different forms of cultural expression through different media, promote reading for children from an early age and facilitate the development of basic skills for using information and informatics. The volunteer will work on the different projects of the library, such as projects with youth and kids, informatics workshops and expositions of books. As the library has many projects going throughout the year, the volunteer will be able to choose what projects interests him or her.
ACCOMMODATION, FOOD AND TRANSPORT ARRANGEMENTS
Accommodation: – To help the integration of the volunteer in the social life and in the French community, the volunteer will be in hosting family the first weeks. The objective of the hosting family will be to help the volunteer in the French integration. – After the host family, the volunteers will be hosted in an apartment, owned by the municipality. – The pocket money and the food money will be provided by us. The amount is to be calculated later and written in the activity agreement, as per the numbers indicated by the program.
TRAINING DURING THE PROJECT
– The volunteers will participate in arrival and mid-term seminars, organised by the National Agency in France. – They will have French courses once a week. – On arrival, they will go through an introduction meeting with our coordinator.
The ideal person for this mission is someone that likes books, videos, games and the library. The library has a lot of different projects, but they are all connected to culture, and therefor there is a need for someone that is motivated by this. If you are a person that is interested in literature, and wish to share it from your own culture, you will fit in to the team really fast. For this mission, the volunteer will have to have some basis in French, as there is no one that speaks English in the library.
