Multicultural Libraries Project in Andalusia: Access to knowledge is everybody’s right
One of the most relevant aspects of current society is its multicultural character as a consequence of the migratory movements that have taken place during recent years. Nowadays, in any of our cities, it is clear that the presence of people original from Africa, Asia or America is a demographic reality that has such an importance in our everyday lives that we may not deny it.
In order to contribute to the enrichment and the encounter of the different cultures that are in contact, it is necessary to promote communication and respect for the difference that exists between immigrant minorities and national majorities. In this sense, the main premise must be to contribute to the integration of the minority in the society, preserving and developing at the same time its own cultural identity and promoting and contributing to the exchange of cultures and their elements and therefore creating more open, rich and plural societies. The public library may and must play a crucial role in the social integration of these minority groups, participating in the social integration processes of immigrant population and getting involved in the fight against cultural prejudice. The project of Multicultural Libraries in Andalusia carries out the following actions:
· Definition of the geographical areas for action.
· Study of the users in the selected areas.
· Training of the heads of the libraries.
· Formation of the documentary collection including all types of supports, both for the libraries that take part in the program and for the mobile book unit of the Library of Andalusia.
· Creation of a web page about information resources for ethnic, cultural and linguistic minorities in Andalusia.
· Cultural activities and activities to promote reading, such as reading workshops, training courses for users, guided visits to the library, courses of Spanish language, etc.
· Follow-up and assessment of the service, including statistics about the use of the service and proposals for acquisitions and activities.

From that position, we developed a methodology whose core is the personal involvement and the desire to build dreams, betting on culture as a basis for social transformation.
//Jarit, Asociación Civil//
Jarit is an association where migrants and locals live and work within a frame of respect and diversity. This integrating and innovative intervention model of organization is conceived as good practice within the institution and as an added value. Within its unselfish team, the presence of the migrants is highlighted by strengthening their integration and promoting their active participation as citizens of their host society.
The facilitating factor for the integration of migrants is the extension and flexibility in the opening and closing of the association, due to coordination between the permanent team and the large influx of volunteers. This helps the immigrant population (most of them usually have very different working schedulles) to interact in an active way with their neighborhood and their city.

In order to gather and protect Lugo’s cultural heritage, the Provincial Council of Lugo agreedin 1932 to create the Lugo Provincial Museum, opened two years later at the Palace of San Marcos (under the direction of D. Luis López Martí), with several rooms cointaing archaeological, historical and artistic goods, which were until then scattered in private collections. The continuous increase of funds and the space limitations forced the transfer of the museum to the former convent of San Francisco in 1957. Conserving three units of this old monastery (kitchen, refectory and cloisters), architect Vigo Manuel Gómez Román (1875-1964) designed a new building with an air of stately galician. On March 1st, 1962, the Provincial Museum of Lugo was declared of cultural interest.

Arts and heritage isolated from education and development have led to serious consequences: limited learning, social and aesthetic exclusion, marginalization and lack of audiences in many disciplines and infrastructures. Many artists, creators, teachers and cultural workers carrying out innovative initiatives have already worked within this initiative. These experiences keep demonstrating the need for seriously considering arts education and cultural heritage education as a fundamental ingredient in the education and development of children, young people and citizens of the XXI century.
