Community-Library Inter-Action (CLIA)


Libraries are community anchors and agents of social transformation. Join libraries from across the world to participate in the Community-Library Inter-Action (CLIA) Project to facilitate local dialogue and community action. In this context, libraries contribute to the collective action and impact on the part of libraries worldwide to advance peaceful and sustainable communities.
