21 July 2011 Let them see us with books

Next Saturday, July 23rd, Podgórze will become a Free Reading Zone. Children and adults are welcome to join us for a picnic with a book. The programme starts at 10.00 a.m. at Cafe Culca (ul. Mostowa 14), and includes games for children, exchanging children’s books as part of the Happy Book Exchange project, a competition for the best tale and art workshops inspired by a book fragment. At noon, we will let them see us with books, participating in a literary happening on the Bernatka Footbridge. Surprise gifts have been prepared for all participants. Read with us!


Happy Book Exchange for children at Cafe Culca, ul. Mostowa 14
Time: 10.00 a.m. - 2.00 p.m.

All children are welcome to join us reading and share their literary collections. During the Exchange, they will be able to trade books for others, find out what other children like reading, meet new fascinating books, and make new friends. The Exchange has a few simple rules: you bring a few books with you. Those who want to exchange books decide on the conditions themselves – they can exchange them or give them away as gifts. The exchange must be free of charge, and the books which have not been exchanged should be taken back home by the owner. Remember to ensure that the books you want to exchange are in good condition, to make other children happy.

NOTICE: all participants of the Happy Book Exchange will be welcome to help themselves to some refreshing lemonade and tarts.

The Reading Footbridge
Time: 12.00 p.m.

A happening on the Bernatka Footbridge - Let them see us with books. Let’s meet at noon on the Footbridge, sit down and read. If you visit Cafe Culca before 12.00 p.m., you will get balloons, Free Reading Zone badges and pins with the gorgeous Culca sloth.

The Great Idleness
Time: 10.00 a.m. - 4.00 p.m.

Great idleness on the other side of the Bernatka Footbridge. The green square will be filled with comfortable sofas with the Free Reading Zone logo. It will be the perfect place to unwind on Saturday with a book and a glass of lemonade.
