Lapinjärvi Library launches its multicultural theme year, Library of Colourful Cultures. The aim of the theme year is to be a place for people to meet, and to raise community spirit by sharing information and stories. Realized by Lapinjärvi Library in cooperation with Koko Kylän Työhuone, the local coworking space open for everyone, the project is funded by the Regional State Administrative Agency of Southern Finland.

The project consists of four Culture Weeks showcasing different countries and their culture. Each Week will be planned and realized together with people from the theme countries. During each Culture Week school children take part in workshops, the Travel Room is open, and Culture Evenings gather people to share stories, enjoy traditional delicacies, and have a good time together.

Themes of the Culture Weeks are Russia and Udmurtia, France, Scotland and the local town of Lapinjärvi.
