Public libraries are open to children, young people, adults, disadvanteged people, immigrants, asylum seekers, elder people, etc.
In order to benefit from the help of the association, the public libraries have to:
- constitute a fixed library, [no mobile libraries]
- make accessible library services to all, regardless of age, race, sex, religion, nationality, language or social status,
- offer collections and services, which are not subject to any form of ideological, political or religious censorship, nor commercial pressures, and
- provide non-fiction collections. [do not offer only fiction]
(Article 4 of the FëBLux constitution, 2016)
The FëBLux also supports public libraries of different culture and language promotion associations/institutions (for example: Biblioteca Italiana), which fulfil the same mission than the Luxembourgish ones: reading promotion, and especially promote the joy of reading.
Article 4 of the FëBLux is geared to the IFLA/UNESCO Public Library Manifesto 1994:
“The services of the public library are provided on the basis of equality of access for all, regardless of age, race, sex, religion, nationality, language or social status. […] Collections and services should not be subject to any form of ideological, political or religious censorship, nor commercial pressures.”
