Visitors can borrow “a living, talking book” for their enlightenment and entertainment. All are welcome and admission is free.

Tomorrow at 2 pm, art teacher Lilianne Vorstenbosch will supervise the Women’s Story Circle’s art workshop on the library’s sixth floor. The art workshop will focus on Australian aborigines’ art. Refreshments will be on offer and children are welcome.

The Story Circle is a project on which Reykjavík City Library and the Women of Multicultural Ethnicity Network in Iceland collaborate.

On the first Sunday of every month women from all corners of the world gather to exchange experiences, chat and work together on art creations at the library.

At the upcoming family mornings at Reykjavík City Library February 9-10, Frída Bjarney Jónsdóttir, project manager at the City’s Playschool Division, will chat with parents on the language development of young children and the importance of native languages with emphasis on children whose native language is not Icelandic.

She will be in the library’s division at Gerduberg in Breidholt on Wednesday and in the library’s main building on Tryggvagata on Thursday, in both instances at 10:30 am.

The family mornings also include informal programs on various topics. Toys and books for children will be available and adults can enjoy a cup of coffee. Participation is free and all are welcome.
