Arapiraca, in the interior of Alagoas, was one of the three cities chosen for the Tô na Rede pilot project. Instituto de Políticas Relacionais joined with the Central Library Professor Pedro de França Reis, linked to the Secretaria de Cultura e Turismo, and Indústrias do Conhecimento,, multimedia centres maintained by SESI, and the Arapiraquinhas, a network of neighbourhood public libraries.
Below is a contemplation from the participants on the importance of Tô na Rede for the community and local libraries.
During the course of 2016, we did an analysis of indicators of the activities of the pilot project. The idea was to measure the impact of the project on the day-to-day life of libraries, to understand what worked, what needed to be improved, and, especially, what we learned from each other. With this experience, we noticed that the most significant result of Tô na Rede is the improvement in the way the community and the library identify themselves and their needs. The video shows the experience of Impact Assessment in Belém, Arapiraca (AL) and São Paulo:
