In the last months a high number of unaccompanied minors came to Europe, looking for a save future on our continent. National support systems run the risk of collapsing and new ways of social inclusion have to be assembled. In this case reading, writing and talking are key-competences in starting off on the right foot in learning and especially in intercultural understanding. The project LIB(E)RO uses the European network of libraries to develop and establish web-based additional skills for librarians. By using the web-portal librarians will be able to act as relevant communicators of basic language- and cultural-skills for young immigrants and libraries will be places of learning and integration.
