      Holiday fun with the library in Szczecin

      The summer holidays are a time for fantastic summer adventures. Not everyone goes to the mountains or the seaside though. However, all is not lost! Lots of attractions await you in Szczecin. The City Public Library has prepared a special holiday offer for young residents of Szczecin.

      And what does the programme include? Plenty of unique activities! During this summer we will be travelling over land and sea with Nela the Reporter, playing detectives and solving the most difficult puzzles. We have also prepared a variety of art and photography workshops for you. And if you like nature you can become experts at identifying trees and insects, or even try yourselves as gardeners. The summer offer also includes coding classes and board and console game tournaments, during which you will be able to compete and win fantastic prizes.

      Detailed information regarding the respective activities prepared by the City Public Library branches can be found below.

      Fun with professions!

      This year’s holiday meetings are aimed at our the youngest readers, who are not yet quite sure what profession they would like to pursue in the future. And choosing this single and most important activity is by no means easy. There are so many interesting professions and, after all, each one is needed and new professions are constantly being created and others are going out of date.

      We therefore invite you to join us every holiday Friday for a reading workshop during which we will learn together about the nature of many professions. We promise lots of great and interesting fun activities.
