bibliotecar Gabi Ţintea


Biblionet is a program that is helping to build a modern public library network in Romania. It is supported by the Washington, D.C. based NGO IREX (International Research and Exchanges Board) with a grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation. Through the delivery of new computers to more than 1500 libraries, Biblionet is fostering free access to information across Romania. As part of the program, librarians are trained in the new technology and how to teach and introduce it in their communities.

Librarian Gabi Tintea from the village of Poiana Marului attended a regional training seminar in the Transylvanian city of Brasov with nine other librarians before IREX delivered the new computers to her library.
