Bookster, the platform that brings reading closer to people in companies, announces the partnership with the Goethe-Institut Bucharest, the first collaboration of this kind with a foreign language institute in Romania. The partnership was born out of the desire to bring the German language and culture closer to Bookster subscribers.
Thus, thanks to the new resources, the reading community now has access to valuable content, including topical resources, books and articles from various fields. The most popular areas are professional development, especially educational resources on leadership, productivity and finance, but also personal development, mental and emotional health.
“Concluding this partnership with the Goethe-Institut Bucharest makes us very happy, especially because it responds in a natural way to the requests received from our subscribers, either to learn the German language and culture or to read various content at an advanced level. At Bookster, we’ve always sought to focus on the desire of employees in companies to grow and learn, so we’ve always built experiences around their interests and expectations. We intend to continue in the direction of diversification, looking for other potential content partners, either from institutes or public or specialised libraries,” says Teodora Rădulescu, CEO of Bookster.
Through this partnership, Goethe-Institut Bucharest became the first library of an institute in Romania to join Bookster in its efforts to encourage reading. Ever since the opening of the platform for partnerships with libraries, the more than 140,000 subscribers registered in the platform enjoy an ever-increasing diversity of resources available in Romanian, English, French, Hungarian and, from now on, German.
From the perspective of the German language and culture enthusiast, Octavian Radu, Bookster shareholder, says:
“I sometimes feel a naive happiness just reading complex sentences in German. My life has been influenced by this language and my success is largely due to my knowledge of it. That’s why I wanted to offer access to content in Gernam on the Bookster platform, which we can do now, in collaboration with the Goethe-Institut Bucharest!”
Speaking about this partnership, Dr Joachim Umlauf, director of the Goethe-Institut Bucharest, states: “We are glad that the Goethe Library is part of the Bookster project, a platform that thus contributes to the promotion of literature and the German language, beyond the usual visitors of the Goethe-Institut Bucharest. We count on the success of this endeavour and invite everyone interested in the German language and German culture to come to our library, which offers a free reader’s pass and where you will also find other cultural surprises.”
