Enjoy the summer holiday weather and the shifting of library books to several public spaces. In Wallonia and Brussels from 01/07 to 31/08/13.

13th event!

The aim of this operation is to offer children an enjoyable time during the summer holidays where they can read and discover a variety of books.

At specific times and places, organisers will head to a defined place, either a park or public space where children usually play (for example a sandpit) and, with a crate or bag of varied books, they will offer children the chance to read the book(s) of their choice or be read to.

Each location is sponsored by a public library in order to encourage children to visit outside of activity sessions in the parks.

This will take place in:

  • Brussels,
  • Braine-l'Alleud,
  • Charleroi,
  • Châtelet,
  • Grâce-Hollogne,
  • Hélécine,
