|Libraries play a key role in society in achieving SDGs. The topic of this poster is an example of a good practice of the Jagodina Library in enhancing cultural heritage. The poster will highlight the promotion of the cultural heritage of the Pomoravlje District, Serbia as a sustainable tourism potential of the local community. Our Library is the oldest cultural institution of our District (1851). Nowadays, the Library also has a mission of a guardian of cultural heritage in the community. In 2020, the Library implemented a digitally inclusive project Revival the past for the future which included field research in the area of Pomoravlje District on 18 monasteries and 58 churches in 6 municipalities and 3 church eparchies. The final result of the project was a printed catalog, consisting of 635 old books, 23 manuscripts, 612 old printed books and 20 serial publications. All books have been declared cultural property. According to the results of that research, the Jagodina Library mapped a cultural route that includes 4 monasteries, 2 churches and 2 cultural institutions, which it will promote in the future. It will contribute to interculturality by bringing together people of different religions, traditions and cultures, while respecting diversity.
