This is not a library

edo-den-einai-vivliothiki

By opening the doors of the Central Public Library of Veria this summer we surprisingly discover that

‘’This is not a library…’’!

We start the summer campaign for the promotion of reading and creativity, which the Νational Library of Greece organizes for the first time along with the network of public and municipal libraries of Future Library.

Under the title ‘’This is not a library…’’ ,children ,teenagers ,adults ,employees and libraries’ guests  can discover through activities, events and workshops the different roles which a library can have. It can become a land of miracles, a hiding place for treasure, a time machine, a map, a museum, a big tree hollow or an aromatic garden. We are waiting for you…
