  • Laurina went to the local library last week. A short update from her: Hey guys ;-) I went to the library and found out that it is possible to make a library card for 15€ for one year. This is also possible to make in the name of an association like wandel würzen e.V. then this card can be give to any trusted peron to use it. But I didn't do it in the end because then we would only be allowed to borrow things that we need for our work with the association! Therefor we would not be able to get DVDs or novels or other things for personal enjoyment... I would suggest people who would want to get things from our library to get a private card on their name and then be able to get media for others as well. Greets and cheers, Laurina

  • proposal: sheet for groups with their information to let the kanthaus know, what people are coming & what they're expecting / planning during their stay. I will also design a sheet which i can send to the participants telling them, what they can expect in kanthaus (e.g. cold water, saved food) and asking them for their wishes (e.g. sleeping alone / in one room, dietary requierements, what food they are maybe bringing, willing to cook)
