University Library invites children to the Night with Andersen

University Employees

The Library of the University of West Bohemia prepared a unique experience for the children of its employees. During the night from 14th to 15th June they will have the opportunity to spend the night in the library and enjoy a fun program.

The Night with Andersen is being held at the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen for the eighth time this year to promote children's reading. In previous years, children have visited the magical world of Harry Potter or enjoyed games and competitions inspired by Ondřej Sekora's "Ferda the Ant". This year, children can look forward to a fabulous night with Lucie Hlavinková's fairy tales from the book "Herbal Grandma".

The event is intended for children aged 6-12 years. If you are interested in signing your children up, please contact the library by June 5 at Capacity will be limited.

There will also be various games and competitions, a sports programme and other activities.

The Night with Andersen is also organised annually by many other libraries in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The event, which has a tradition of more than twenty years, aims to show children that reading is a great adventure. It takes place on the anniversary of the birth of the Danish fairy-tale writer, Hans Christian Andersen.
