The second week in Zarasai local library was full of events and competitions.
The Monday morning started at the primary school “Santarves”. There was a poetry competition between pupils. They read poems. We didn’t understand the content but their way of reading and acting was so expressive and impressive. We liked and admired it very much. While the judges were choosing the best of the best, we were dancing, jumping and signing with all of the guests. Later Liudmila Vaitaviciene (the librarian) in the role of a funny and positive hare demonstrated 5 kids’ books from the library. It was done in order they became interested in reading. After the results we congratulated children and took photos. It was amazing and funny.
On Thursday kids’ authors and artists Kestutis Kasparavicius and Sigute Ach were invited at the library. They write and draw pictures to their books themselves. They entertained and played with children.
On Friday there was one more poetry competition among children who came with their teachers from the district towns.
During this week we leant how the library works. Now we know what programme the librarians use in order to give, take, register books. We know more about numbers and letters on books. The working system becomes clear day after day.
