Cornellà de Llobregat Wikiproject

Members of Amical Xavier Dengra and Kippelboy gave every Wednesday of November a workshop on Wikipedia at the Central Library of Cornellà de Llobregat. Some citizens and representatives of some of the cultural associations of the city were attended. At least one librarian from each city library has acquired basic knowledge about the free encyclopedia. Our WikiArS exposition was also exhibited at the same library throughout all month.

A workshop was also held in one of the schools of the city (IES Esteve Terradas), and from which an educational project to translate Cornellà articles from Catalan to English has begun.
