The MultiLib library keeps growing! When the project ended in 2018 we had 24 beautifully illustrated e-books – 12 traditional and 12 modern stories from 12 cultural contexts and in 12 languages:
- Czech, Turkish, French, Greek, English, and Swedish (languages in partner countries)
- Armenian, Haitian, Kurdish, Russian, Syrian and Tibetan (languages spoken by immigrants in the partner countries)
Every book can be read in twelve different languages and you can listen to each book in the original language as well as in English.
Enjoy the beauty of the books in the library with all 156 books on the MultiLib Platform!
Output 1 The MultiLib Library was in control of The Mosaic Art & Sound Ltd* but all six partners contributed with 4 books each and with the translation of each book in the library.
* The Mosaic Art Sound Ltd. a private company based in the UK. It develops projects in two directions: education/culture and the arts. In the social field, The Mosaic designs and delivers activities to enhance human relationships, both for adults and children, disadvantaged groups and ethnic minorities. In the area of education and culture, it is active in research and applications of music to enhance life at all levels and to integrate foreign language teaching. The Mosaic staff developed research projects and applied the outcomes within formal and non-formal educational settings, through training courses and events.
