First October participant

Welcome new Sister Library participant: Penza Regional Library for Children and Young Adults

We want to learn the experience of other libraries from different countries, to find interesting ideas and methods of working with our readers. And of course we are ready to show you the activities of our library. Together we could help children and young adults find educational and entertaining foreign books, needed information and even new friends. Also we could organize and hold library events on different topics (nature, culture, history and etc.) with famous people of our cities. We could virtual travel through the cities and regions of each other.

Nadeshda from Penza writes about her library:
