World Book Day on Saturday – will you join us?

World Book Day at the library is almost here! Join us this Saturday from 1-4pm. The library will stay open until 5pm.

Hear stories from around the world, do book-related crafts and explore our catalogue with your children. There will even be resources to take home with you to help you discover new reading favorites. Children are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite character.

Visit our cake stand and indulge in some sweet treats. The money we raise goes toward new book purchases and keeping the lights on.

See you at the library on Saturday!*

* While we do have a good supply of hand soap at the library, we ask that you exercise caution and reconsider your visit to World Book Day if you have recently been in an area affected by COVID-19.

News from CEL – Save the date: World Book Day event

Saturday, March 7, 2020

Imagine: every child and young person having a book to call their very own. That’s the vision of World Book Day. It’s one we’re delighted to support since libraries like ours provide an irreplaceable hub for community reading experiences. Celebrate with us!

Join us for an afternoon of readings from books around the world, crafts and collaborative storytelling activities. And treat yourself to some goodies at our bake sale… because it’s no fun reading on an empty stomach. The event will run from 1-4pm, while the library will remain open until 5pm.

Mark your calendars and please stay tuned for more details!

(we know the logo shows a different date – schools in the UK celebrate World Book Day on the Thursday – we aren’t open so we are going for the Satruday 7th March)

This event is complimentary for CEL members. Non-member guests are asked to make a €2 donation to the library.

When: Friday, January 31, 7:30-10:30pm
Where: Traubergstrasse 30
