Children's library "School of Little Wise Men in Runch Brass"

For the fourth time, Gulbene Children's Library is involved in the activities of the Book Start. It is a reading promotion program developed by the Children's Literature Center of the National Library of Latvia for pre-school children who take care of reading pleasure, reading skills, education and personal development. More than 60 children of Gulbene region have already been active in the library and have also received a special book bag with which to visit the library in the future. It is a pleasure that many of these children are active book readers and users of other library services.

In 2018, 47 libraries have participated in this program throughout Latvia, and the number of libraries is increasing every year. This year, for the first time, 10 libraries are operating in the program, including the library of Litene Parish.

The starting mascot of the book is the wise Pūčulēns, who also visited the Gulbene Children's Library in the first lessons. For several years now, the mascot of Gulbene Children's Library has been the tomcat Misin, who is a great friend and supporter of Pūčulēns. This year, children's librarians and the tomcat Messina will be waiting for the little three- and four-year-olds to attend the school of the little sages of the raccoon Messina.

Runča Messina's School of the Little Wise Men will be open once a month on Saturdays at 11.00. The first lesson on January 26. Application until January 24.

Classes will take place for one hour. During this time, the children and parents, together with the school principal's toad Brass and the librarians, will read books, sing a little and move, think, talk and laugh a lot.

We will agree on the following dates in the first lesson.

The tomcat Brass is very much waiting for the little sages! More information - solvita.libere@gulbenesbiblioteka.lv , 64473266 or by coming to the children's library.
