The competition for the Prize was organized by the Liepāja Central Scientific Library.
Solvita Lībere has been working in the Children's Library of Gulbene Region Library for 31 years. Describing him, the key words are - energetic, talkative, full of ideas, with a strong opinion, bringing dynamics to the collective. Solvita has a qualification as a psychologist's assistant, which explains her ability to become friends with children. Children and young people are always gathered around them by talking and listening to them easily.
Solvita has put a lot of work and ideas into making the Children's Library a friendly and supportive environment for children of all ages and their parents. She organizes library work in such a way as to involve children and young people in activities, to stimulate their curiosity.
2019 has been rich in various events. A total of 130 events have taken place for new readers. Three new, innovative activities have been created, the initiator and main implementer of which is S. Lībere:
- Tenteris at the library game - children and young people get to know books and library in a modern way using the mobile application QRCode.
- The hikes have been replaced by unprecedented ones - bicycle rides for children's library readers and their parents to the nearest county libraries to get to know the county and its famous people.
- The organization of the youth camp was a very serious challenge. This required both the acquisition of new knowledge and the acquisition of funds by launching a municipal project competition. These activities will also become traditional, as they have attracted genuine interest from young readers.
The staff of Gulbene County Library is heartily happy with the high rating of Solvita!
