EDUCATIONAL LEARNING CENTRE OF THE YEAR
The “Educational Learning Centre of the Year” award is bestowed by the Danish organisation Kommunernes Forening for Pædagogiske Læringscentre (the Municipal Association for Education Learning Centres), in collaboration with Systematic.
After the recent reform of the Danish school system came in force, Danish school libraries transitioned from being traditional library structures into modern educational learning centres. Systematic has sponsored this prize in order to support this development.
The award for the Educational Learning Centre of the Year is presented each year at the annual meeting of the Kommunernes Skolebiblioteksforening (Municipal School Library Association).
In 2016, the event was held at Den Gamle By (the Old Town) in Aarhus, where the theme was “The educational learning centre as cultural mediator”. The award went to Arden School in Mariager Municipality.
