American Spaces in Greece

Education, Media & Culture

American Spaces in Greece are built upon the concept of local partnership. Sponsored jointly by the U.S. Embassy in Athens and an increasing number of Greek public libraries, an American Corner serves as an information source similar to a public library reference service.

An American Corner provides public access to current and reliable information about the United States via book collections, the Internet, and through visiting speakers.

The fundamental purpose is to promote mutual understanding between Greece and the United States.
