Our multilingual library is now open in the camp !
By Sixtine Le Jeanne - Library Project Manager
We are over excited to share with you out new development, we finally set up and opened our library container. On Wednesday, we held an opening event to introduce and celebrate this new space to all the residents and people working in the camp. Last Thursday, we also held an event for the kids in our new library with games, books and snacks. Little to say that those events were a great success! Our library is in the education and school area, and offers over 1,000 books in more than 10 languages and lots of different games to the camp residents. We were very happy for the warm welcome and for the support from everyone! We will be open every week day: Monday to Friday for littlies and adults.
Starfish has also started to organise in our library every morning different activities for the children: such as reading, drawing, beading workshops and film sessions.
In addition we moved the popup mobile library to a more high-traffic area in the camp, which proved to be was a great success as we doubled the number of books borrowed this month.
