Educational media center is a project founded mutually by Vilnius Jesuit High School (VJG) and Lithuanian Jesuit Province. Its main goals are to provide high quality cultural facilities for the society and to make media literacy, science, religion and overall educational processes both interactive and ceaseless. Lojoteka is considered to be a modern media center that satisfies the combined informational needs of contemporary society and appeals to various individuals of different professions, education, ages, etc.
With major support from our community we are creating a modern, aesthetic and functional environment that welcomes and encourages everyone to be creative, to think critically, to gain visual and audio cognition, as well as to discover novel ideas.
The name "Lojoteka" is made up of the surname of Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Jesuit Order, and the Greek word thēkē, meaning "repository" (cf. bibliotheke, meaning library). This word reflects one of the most important functions of the Centre, which is to house and open to the public the collection of books gathered by the Lithuanian Jesuits.
