As a symbolic end of the workshop on interculturality, Pippi Longstocking and the Indian girl Pocahontas (representatives of the host library) took us back to the childhood and time of reading the first books through an interactive travel accrss European countries and introducing the participants with the tribal wisdom of Indians and Aborigines.
At the end of the workshop the libraries from Croatia gave each of the partner libraries from Serbia a set of multimedia materials (books and CDs) promoting intercultural dialogue.
