Write in the post:

  • the name of the author
  • the country of origin
  • and 3-5 sentences about your connection to this book OR a quote from it
  • #BOYL

We are excited to learn about all the inspiring books you’ve read! Books recommended during the campaign will be located in the collection of ELTE Libraries and if not yet available, they may be purchased by the University Library and Archives!

The Library invites you to participate in this campaign as part of their cultural inclusivity project called Book of Your Life! The BOYL-project aims to bring the international and local students together, and to make the library a more inclusive space. The concept of supporting the integration of international students arriving at ELTE won a grant from the European Cultural Foundation and is part of the European Challenge.

The Europe Challenge is an annual program that brings together libraries and communities across Europe to address pressing challenges in their local areas. The program was first launched in 2020 by the European Cultural Foundation and partners. The Europe Challenge is supported by Fondazione Cariplo, the Scottish Library and Information Council, and by public funding through Arts Council England!
