Veria Library, a small institution in northern Greece, “is about making people’s lives easier and better, not just about housing books and information,” says Ioannis Trohopoulos, director of the Library. “We are a small library that is committed to offering modern tools and services to help as many people as possible find new economic, academic, and social opportunities.” The library serves the 50,000 residents of Veria, and 130,000 more people in the surrounding area. To reach people in distant rural villages, the library sends out mobile libraries equipped with books and laptop computers.
