Description: We are a network of three public libraries in Getxo (Bizkaia, Euskadi, Spain), two of them with children and youth sections and the third one with adults-only section. The three libraries are: Gobela, San Nikolas and Villamonte. We belong to a public entity called Aula de Cultura de Getxo, with whom we share resources, part of the cultural programming and staff. A total of fourteen people work in the three libraries with varying schedules. From the standpoint of equipment and buildings, we are quite modest libraries, with some lacks, however, in terms of programming and staff are a little better. We are part of the National Library System of Euskadi, dependent of the Basque Government. Getxo is a northern coastal town, to 132 km. of the border with France, of great tourist interest.
