It is that time of the year again. The time librarians call Halloread!

In the library we have prepared a scary books exhibition that will make you scared all week.

It is a very young organisation, launched in March 2019 with a focus on increasing young people’s self esteem, encouraging them in understanding their own value and to have the courage to stand up for themselves and others.
