Biblioteca Guarimba – Library for refugees

The Library is located inside the Asylum Seeker Center of Amantea (CS) and has more than 100 books available for all the people living inside the camp and for all the citizens of the town. It is not a border but a bridge.

After the success of the project Wandering Cinema: integration stories we realized that the people living inside the camp had a lot of needs. One of those was having access to books. This is the reason we decided to build a small library with books in Italian, English, French and Arab. Literature, learning books and essays.

From June 23rd 2016 the library is open and it will be open until it is necessary.

We are in charge of receiving the books, catalog them and bringing them to the Asylum Seeker Center.

At this moment we are still needing a lot of dictionaries, books of Italian grammar, novels in English, French and Arab.


Italian 89LIBRI
English 28LIBRI
