This summer the Krakow libraries have prepared a whole gamut of experiences and attractions for their readers (particularly the youngest ones)! There will be games, workshops, visual arts activities and mutual reading of books, excursions to the Zoological Garden and the Botanical Garden, putting a jigsaw puzzle together and a trip to the island of treasures. For all of the summer holidays, young people and children can have excellent fun with books and discover fantastic literary worlds.
Here is the wealth of attractions that the Krakow libraries offer to you in July and August.
The Nowa Huta Public Library in Krakow (os. Stalowe 12) has prepared an attractive summer vacation pastime program entitled Vacation liking for the library. All libraries have actively joined the organisation of activities for children and young people. Children will spend time actively, safely and attractively. Librarians have planned excursions to the Botanical Garden of Jagiellonian University, which will be combined with reading in the shadow of trees and the collecting of leaves for the herbarium, to the Zoological Garden, where children will make their first literary attempts, to the Skalski Park and to the Green Ravine. The program also includes competitions, literary & educational activities, origami, visual arts and ecological workshops in libraries and in the outdoors, including the Nowa Huta Meadows. They will be conducted by Dr Marcin Nobis and Krzysztof Kus under the Ecological education: On friendly terms with nature project.
Many activities will be devoted to Julian Tuwim in connection with the Year of Tuwim that is being celebrated. Organising various activities, librarians will familiarise young readers with Tuwim and his poems. During meetings, children will travel to the land of fantasy, experience unusual adventures and stimulate their imagination. We propose, among others, origami workshops entitled Mr Tuwim’s Animals, More Fun With Tuwim – a meeting within the With A Book in the Shadow of Trees series, and Tuwim’s Land – a meeting within the cycle Loud Reading on a Magical Carpet.
All young readers can spend their time safely in libraries together with other peers and under the supervision of librarians. They will have free access to the Internet, educational computer games and board games, e-learning platforms: FunEnglish.pl and angielski123.pl and visual arts materials.
