IE Library supports again sustainable and inclusive education with the donation of books and academic material to the library of the segovian municipality of Vallelado.
Article in Segovian Press: IE University apuesta por la educación sostenible e inclusiva con la donación de libros para apoyar la lectura en Segovia.
The collaboration between the two libraries took place this week and is part of IE Library’s commitment to support local communities, in this case by helping to enrich the library collection of the small Segovian municipality of Vallelado. Around 200 Spanish-language books have been donated, including novels, children’s stories, poetry and general interest essays.
This project reinforces IE Library’s commitment to sustainability and joins other initiatives that the library has carried out in recent years, promoting inclusive and egalitarian education in line with the fourth Sustainable Development Goal (SDG), and contributing to the circular economy and the values of responsible consumption and recycling in line with the twelfth SDG of the 2030 Agenda.
The Vallelado library, which was inaugurated less than a year ago, occupies what used to be, among other things, a former monks’ convent or Civil Guard barracks, a historic building known as ‘Casa Grande‘ dating back to the 18th century and which has been restored thanks to the investment of the Diputación Provincial de Segovia.
It is hoped that the Vallelado library will begin to welcome young people studying away from home at weekends, as in addition to this collection of books, the library also has a small study room, a cultural space and a computer area.
This donation opens up a line of collaboration for future activities and alliances between this and other libraries in Segovia with the aim of promoting local initiatives that guarantee inclusive and equal education in the community.
