The Lisbon Libraries Network is a contributing factor to change served communities into informed and knowledge-based communities, providing the settings and activities which promote a lifelong learning attitude. Bearing this in mind, the Lisbon Libraries promote reading and literacies in order to foster critical and creative thinking and the ability to communicate, feel, interpret and form an opinion in the most diverse circumstances.
The main goal of this programme is to consolidate skills in
1) communication in the mother tongue,
2) communication in foreign languages,
3) mathematical competence and basic competences in science and technology of the European Framework of Reference.
