American Corners – Američki kutci u Hrvatskoj

American Corners ili Američki kutci su male knjižnice uređene u američkom stilu, osnovane da bi povećale uzajamno razumijevanje između Republike Hrvatske i Sjedinjenih Američkih Država, pružajući razne oblike informacija o SAD – o njihovoj povijesti, znanosti, kulturi, narodu, pravnom i političkom sustavu, trgovini, studiranju i radu u SAD… Informacije su namijenjene širokom krugu ljudi, jednako specijalistima kao i onima koji trebaju opću informaciju.
