Programme for children and their families in the schools winter break

There will be plenty going on in the library’s cultural centres during the junior school half-term winter break from the 19th - 21st of February. Besides attending the many organised events, children are also welcome to come to the library to play cards, dress up, try various puzzles or simply sit down with a book and read.

Among other things on offer this year are reading for dogs in the main library in Grófin (central Reykjavík), a paper workshop in Árbær and bingo in the Sólheimar and Kringlan branches. In Gerðuberg there will be a course in music programming held in collaboration with the Kóder group.

The mobile Story Unit (Sögubíllinn Æringi) is now celebrating its tenth anniversary with a special programme in which the witches Nína and Njóla will be there to welcome children aboard. 
Finally, International Mother Tongue Day will be celebrated; this year it offers children the chance to send letters in their own language to friends and relatives wherever they are: in Svalbarði, Siglufjörður or Senegal. The library will provide stationery and stamps and give guidance on how to make your own envelopes. Post boxes will be on hand, and the association Móðurmál will be present in the Grófin library.

Please, take a better look at the programme of events...
