Library & Specialized Libraries
The Children’s Library (CH) provides educational, recreational and cultural resources for children aged 6 to 11. It contains a large collection of picture books, story books, nonfictional books and multimedia materials. The material is available in several languages and covers a wide range of subjects from arts to zoology.
In addition to the reading area, the CH encompasses a computer lab, an activities room, a storytelling and puppet-show corner, and a multimedia corner. A special section is dedicated to children with different types of disabilities. Several activities are offered by the CH staff on a daily basis, such as storytelling, puppet show performances and arts and crafts groups. Children’s authors are often invited to read to the children.
The main objective of the CH is to develop the children’s reading, research and creativity skills through the different programs and activities.
