Annual conference about children's and YA literature

Saturday March 6th 2021

This year, the annual conference about children's and YA literature, will focus on reading as a family experience.

When social events vanished, gatherings were prohibited and various service got shut down, the nation hibernated with a book. Children and adults read, side by side, aloud and in silence, in the couch, under a blanket, in the bathtub and in the car. Even though children may learn how to read in schools, it's often at home that they train reading to become a passion and learn to love literature. 

•    Location of event: Berg, assembly room at the second floor 
•    Café will be served. 

At the conference 2021 four speakers will address family reading.

The conference  is organized by Síung, Félag fagfólks á skólasöfnum (The associations of professionals at school libraries), IBBY, SFS , Upplýsing and The City Library.

This event is in Icelandic, but everyone is welcome. 

General information about Covid-19 restrictions at the library.
