RTC Bibliomist of Zhytomyr

The Bibliomist program is helping Ukrainian libraries to better serve their communities through a countrywide system of public internet access and customized local services in libraries.

Bibliomist fosters the development of a modern public library system in Ukraine to improve socioeconomic conditions. Since 2014, Bibliomist libraries have also demonstrated their relevance during times of crisis, offering new services for those displaced by armed conflict and connecting communities to vital information about reforms and decentralization.


Bibliomist is a part of Global Libraries initiative of Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) implemented in Ukraine.
Bibliomist is a partnership of the following organizations: International Research and Exchanges Board (IREX), selected by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to implement Bibliomist in Ukraine, the Ukrainian Library Association (ULA), Microsoft, which donates an estimated $9 million in software to Ukraine’s public libraries, as part of its global initiative to endow communities with accessible and useful technology and the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine. A Protocol of Intentions between the Ministry of Culture and IREX regarding implementation of project "Bibliomist" was signed in Kyiv on December 8, 2008. The Ministry of Culture provides overall project supervision of Bibliomist.


Bibliomist awards funding to public libraries on a competitive basis through a series of contests: "Public Access Contest", "Community Participation Contest" (small grants), "Learning Libraries", "Outreach contest". Besides, librarians are encouraged to participate in various professional development programs, such as "Library Leadership Program", and take part in different online contests.
