The birthday of Zarasai and book fair

On the 13th of August we celebrated the birthday of Zarasai. Our library participated in the book fair that took place in the square. We had some activities with kids. The theme of the colouring was not to paint over the pictures but to use different symbols. It was in partnership with ethnographic center.

Roko naktys

From the 5th till the 6th of August we had a 2 days’ Roko Naktys festival in Zarasai.

I like rock music but the ticket for 2 days was a bit expencive. My mentor got one more ticket and I went to the fest. It was super nice.

I have so many positive emotions about it.

Aciu labai 🙂

As a conclusion of the EVS project we need to fill in the Youthpass with 8 competences.

The Youthpass is supposed to be useful in future (for example, applying for a job) as a good reference and recommendation to our personal achievements, skills and competences.

Denmark – Copenhagen; Spain -Barcelona; Italy -Rome

At the begining of July I had several amazing trips to tree countries: Denmark, Spain and Italy. I really did lоve them.

Copenhagen is very peaceful and calm. People like to drive not cars, but bikes. They have certain traffic rules and follow them. Parents use special bikes with carriages fir their small kids. Everything is beautiful. Nice houses with cosy yards. A perfect place to live and enjoy life 🙂

Barselona so far is the best city I’ve visited during my travels. People are warm, with kind natural smiles. The sea is perfect, it’s crowded but if you come early in the morning it’s ok 🙂 The architecture is wonderful and very beautiful. Sagrada Familia is eternally constructed piece of Gaudy’s  creation makes admire each detail.

Rome is full of atmosphere of ancient times. Very beautiful! Churches are amazing. Vatican and Coliseum, the cathedral of St. Peter – it’s a must to see.

Librarians’ annual camp in Panevegis district

On the 14th of June we went to Panevegis district in order to participate in the librarians’ annual camp with the workers.

We had a small show called “Zuikis puikis” about the importance of books and library. We played a lot of games and competed with other libraries.

There was a party for which we dressed as if we were from the 17th century. We slept in tents, listened to Lithuanian songs, met a lot of people, danced traditional dances and had much fun.


The end of the English and French clubs

At the end of June we finished our clubs English and French.

We had a farewell party with our students. We made certificates for those who attended all the classes till the very end.

We got nice presents from them: pictured books about Zarasai and tasty chocolate. It was really nice evening full of smiles and good mood with good food and drinks 😉



Russian club

In June I started the Russian club for 2 enthusiastic students from France (Clemence) and Italy (Gabriella).

Even though it was not so long my students made very good progress and learnt the basic words and sentences 🙂
