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:

Kopavagur, Iceland:

We are always looking to broaden our horizons and wish to learn new things and new approaches to working with children in the modern library.

Shaler North Hills, Pennsylvania US:

Some of our students have not had the opportunity to leave our county. We would love to provide an opportunity that will allow technology to bring students together. Due to the nature of adolescence, teens tend to find interest in subjects that have a personal relevance to them. Getting to know others in a distant nation would afford them a connection, making the study of current world events more meaningful and more worthy of attention. We would like to implement this program with rising and current seventh and eighth graders, ages 12-14.
