Type of library suitable for the project

  • Public
The Heilbronner Stadtbibliothek has set up a project on language skills of immigrants through conversation with volunteers. These services have been very helpful in providing free and open access for all, computer and internet workstations, literature for learning German, personal advice.

Project description

Refugees with a temporary residence status receive a free library card and there have been around 1500 that have been delivered since summer 2015. Learning a language works better when there are more opportunities to communicate with “native speakers”. The Heilbronn “Treffpunkt Deutsch” (German Meeting Point) is born to meet this need, with volunteer “mentors” reaching users through flyers and, above all, through personal contacts with “guests” in the library, every week for 90 minutes to talk and learn. More than 2200 guests have visited the meeting place since then, which is no longer a place for refugees, but for people from all over the world who want to learn German. By profession, they are bakers, hairdressers, computer scientists or philosophers and they come from 40 countries, mainly from Syria, Eritrea, Iraq and Afghanistan, but also from Peru, Nepal and Belarus.
