We are a politically neutral and independent organization that raises money for needy libraries.

In accordance with the guidelines of Unesco we support the provision of resources and services in public libraries, which are not subject to any form of ideological, political or religious censorship, nor commercial pressures.
We are committed to ensure that the foreign-language population of Luxembourg has eased access to literature in their language through public libraries.
Our main concern is the creation, maintenance and development of public libraries in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, and national professional associations and institutions that contribute to their modernization.
To ensure an efficient use of funds, we also offer information services and guidance for project executing organisations.
Our domain is the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. Special efforts are to library related underdeveloped parts of the country.
We also campaign for cross borders cooperation.
We are committed to high standards of quality, creativity and innovation of the projects supported by us, as long as their realization is in a reasonable range.
We are closely following the developments in librarianship and continuously adapt our products and services to meet any changing needs.
