See you at the library!
On May 3rd, the event “Ci vediamo in biblioteca!” (See you at the library!) took place at the Trieste Convention Center, in the Auditorium Generali at Porto Vecchio (now Porto Vivo). The event was organized to introduce children from the kindergartens in Trieste to the pleasure of reading and the city’s libraries.
Promoted by the Department for Education and Family Policies of the Municipality of Trieste, the event involved 36 kindergartens and received support from the Municipality’s Mobility and Traffic Service, Local Police, and Local Public Transport service to ensure logistics and safety.
During the event, the children had the opportunity to meet the Trieste artist Nicoletta Costa and two of her characters, Nuvola Olga and Nina. Library kits were distributed, containing a souvenir library card, an informative booklet about Trieste’s municipal libraries, and a print with a dedication from Nicoletta Costa. Each school also received a copy of the book “Nina & Olga. Amiche speciali” (Nina & Olga. Special Friends), offered by the Mondadori publishing house.
The initiative provided children with an opportunity to get closer to reading and libraries, thanks to the collaboration between institutions, teachers, families, and organizers.
