Building a library in Nocrich scout center - Romania

31. Jan 2014

In Nocrich village and NocrichScout Center, to have a library available both for local children and for Scouts arriving there from anywhere in Romania or the world and we intend to target raising donations and building shelves books order to achieve a physically library

For 2 months we developed a campaign to collect books in about 10 locations in Sibiu as cafes, libraries, high schools that learn our venture scouts, or Library Humanitas or Astra Sibiu. Following this campaign we managed to collect over 1200 books on different topics and in different languages

Regarding the physical library, this is entirely built from recycled materials, from wood to stone. For its construction were some of the leaders and explorers busy center of Sibiu Red Fortress, stating that they did not have any experience like this before. I started by "unlocking" the boards, cut them with a saw, which we had the most, their polishing and varnishing them. After a month in which the wood had time to dry, along with our leaders, we assembled more skilled than the current library.

The beneficiaries are scouts, students, young people and their parents in Nocrich village and Scouts from the Organization of Romanian Scouts or scouts and volunteers arriving from anywhere in the world and and speak Romanian / German / English / Spanish / French.
