Budget constraints are most severe for people living in poverty, for poor communities and for the world's poorest countries.
In below table we explore to what extent budget constraints will be hurdles for performing the #isic9101jk - the local public library journey.
|#isic910101 - appoint a librarian in each town||
It is very likely that a town without a library also doesn't have a budget to pay a librarian, even a part-time librarian. In this case it is recommended that a volunteer is appointed.
Another option is that a librarian is appointed for several towns, and pays weekly visits to all towns where he or she is appointed. As travel and a considerable period of time may be involved, this option is less suitable for volunteer librarians.
|#isic910102 - enhance library services in each town||
In poor communities, library services demand a minimum of physical facilities. For instance print books, internet connectivity, devices for accessing online content. (Check #SDT09c - significantly increase access to ICT and strive to provide universal & affordable access to internet in LDCs for the evolving status regarding access to mobile internet.)
In some cases a mobile library might offer a cost effective solution for a district or region. Also other options for "rural access to online content" exist, such as the 'Info ladies' who go biking to bring remote Bangladeshi villages online.
|#isic910103 - integrate the world's online collection in the local library||
Once an affordable access to the internet can be established, the world wide web brings a enormous content collection within reach of the internet users.
This page is part of the requirements for a #2030Library - A global library for Localizing the Sustainable Development Goals (and fighting the emergence of #AltFacts in public policy).
